Stalling k1500


I just bought a 97 Chevy k1500 z71. 350 5.7 liter everything running great on this truck, but for my own purpose I changed out rotor, distributor cap, plugs and wires, air filter, fuel filter, and changed everything out and all of a sudden, now it runs worse??? What the hell stalling cause the idle is too low, and hesitates when starting up, have to keep my foot on pedal to keep it running??? Help anyone, spark plugs came to me .60 gaped... Help anyone????

Been there, done that. #6 and #8 on my 3500 van. Took longer than I care to admit to figure out the problem.

What's aggravating is when someone reminds me I did it 30 years ago and I'll not be able to remind you 30 years from now. Dammmitt.

Have everything in engine beside the spark plug? Is there idle adjustment in your car?
