what carby weber? if it does what its doing its starving for fuel maybe blocked jets or closed needle and seat.... if its a stock xf weber make sure all hoses and wires a still on....if you wanna fix a xf carby put it in the bin,go to the wrecker and get an xe weber....if its got a holley on it same thing its running out of fuel check float level or power valve......like was said before check filter and fuel line for blockage.... also power valve on weber can cause this, clean it up around the ball bearing use some metho....if the power valve on a weber is stuffed throw it in the bin its part of the body of the carb...hope it helps
