Engine randomly stalling.

I have a savage 4.6 it runs great accelaterates fine, will wheeley on command but it recently started stalling for no reason the engine doesn't big down it will just stall and it does it about every two mins of run time, changed the plug, re tuned it and it still does it also when I hit the break it stalls right away, I checked the carb and there Is a good size gap when I break. So Im out of ideas, anyone know what's wrong and how to fix it?

Does it stall if you hit the brakes while the truck is stopped, or just if you hit the brakes while it's moving at a decent speed? Does it behave the same on a totally fully tank, or only after a few minutes of running?

Acts same no matter for full tank is. And if I even touch the brake that kills it. I have a feeling it has to do with the throttle linkage closing the carb to much when I hit the brake. Think that could be it?

Yep, adjust the idle screw so that the carb can't close further than it is at idle currently.
