Stalling ProblemsAre there any vacuum leaks? Inadequate fuel reaching carb, or carb not functioning properly.

If it sounds like it wants to start but dies when you let go of the key, it may have a bad ballast resister or Resister wire as when it is in the start position it by passes those items and when it is released to the on position it no longer by passes them so if it is bad the truck won't start..........................................

or it could be a bad power valve it sits on the under side of your carb looks like a big nut that has a fuel hose that goes to it this will cause you to have starting issues n you'll have to keep pumping the gas to get it to stay runing till its primed its fuel line up if you stop for more that 10 minutes you have to start the pumping thing again this is a easy fix save your starter n battery at the same time .....

How do you repair a 1984 Chevrolet Caprice when it stalls at rest?

Generally if a car stalls at idle "rest" you need to increase the idle rpm just a little to keep it from doing so. There should be an idle adjustment screw on the side of the carburetor if so equipped. [http://www.themotorbookstore.com/index.html Purchasing a manual] or talking with a local mechanic would help as well.
