Lost Power!!

I've been working on my '80 F100 for about a month and a half now and have been doing some great work for teaching myself as I go. Just recently my Bro-In-Law has been over and decided to work on my truck while I was out there and now I can barely get the truck to move. I think that all he did was fiddle with my carb, any ideas??

If he was messing with the carb, check the air mixture screw, turn it in to it stops, do not tighten, then open @ 2 turns and see how it runs. Did he change the timing?

I dont think he did anything to my timing but I know he changed the vacuum line cluster around to nearly nothing.

Make sure it is to the ported vacuum advance location and not just manifold vacuum.

Take it (metal label tag) down to Knechts, they will give you the right kit.
Should be a breeze, pay attention to the float settings.
