Ensure fuel squirts into the venturi at the same motion the throttle is moved, however slight.
Might even increase initial timing.

Re: Car idles fine but give gas dies in any gear except park

Check it squirts as Everett says
That ok
Check the gap (holley) when Throttle wide open with 1 hand....push/lever up the accel pump with the other, then with your teeth, make sure there is a 15 to 18 thou gap.
If u have dentures may be best to get someone to measure the gap.

SHAME on you..heathen...never had a drop of aged Chivas wiskey....
My Son , a couple yrs ago was returning from a job overseas...suggested he would pick me up a bottle in duty free.....hes never made the offter again....the Chivas nearly broke his bank a/c lol...
Its not about the volume one drinks...after a couple one can drink meths and not know the difference....its about the quailty, and remaining sober enough to enjoy every drop.
Anyway I cant afford to drink it by the volume lol
