I've got a '79 cv80 beluga and it is have some odd troubles.

I pulled it out of winter storage a little while ago, I had the tank drained before winter, so I put in some premium fuel as I always have and fired her up, it took a little while to get going but when it finally fired it ran great. Got to drive it around for a couple hours and not a problem.

However the problems came the next day.
I fired her up again no problem and it idled great but when I switched it over to run, it stalled out on me and did this again and again, finally it stayed running with key in run position, I took off and it stalled again after about 100ft, and it keeps on repeating this process.

does anybody know why this would happen? I've replaced the spark plug and vacuum. lines but to no avail.

Have you checked for air leaks? Does it die immediately after you turn it to run?
