Idles rough, dies out when you put it in gear, when you pull a hill it will sputter, hesitate and eventually die, we spent almost 2 hours the other night on a hill waiting for it to cool off so it would pull the rest of the hill without problems. After that happened I had my dad go and get an intake tube from the air filter to the fender air funnel to try and help the carb stay a little cooler, but that hasn't seemed to help as much as I was hoping.

On a side note, I know that this motor can have problems with vibration related to the torque converter, and was wondering if anyone has had the same problem and what the fix was?
