a couple of things. 1: does it drive good doesnt stumble when driving if not the carby might be flooding..... 2: if it runs great and only dies when the brakes are applied, does it idle rough then die, it might be the brake booster.

maybe your tcc solenoid, which is in the transmission. my 84 montecarlo did that with a new carb

You can get brakes from any automotive supply store or the dealership.
