    In response to Mick53

I have since removed the carburetor (Rochester) and gave it a good cleaning, and made sure that the float was moving freely. There was a little sediment at the bottom of the bowl.
I replaced the carb, and it started with no problem and I let it idle for about 3 minutes; I then drove it on level streets for about 1 1/2 mile, stopping at stop signs and traffic signals - no problem. I then made another try at the hill. It took it like a champ with no problem. To my dismay, however, upon stopping at a stop sign about a 1/4 mile after cresting the hill and on level roadway, it stalled.
It started, and I drove it another 1/4 mile to my driveway, and stalled as I was turning in. It continued to stall if I let up on the accelerator and went to idle.
I believe the problem must be in carburetor float somehow, and I will attack the problem from that angle. The fact that it climbed that hill was a mini victory.
