Default 84 corvette keeps stalling

The car had been sitting for some time in the garage. I decided to flush the cooling system and perform the neglected maintenance on the vehicle. I flushed the cooling system, replaced all the hoses and the coolant sensor. I was driving it home from the garage and the vehicle was running fine, but right before I got home it started to run very rough. When i pulled into the garage the engine stalled. I can start the car but it idles rough sometimes it will stall. If I try to press the accelerator it will stall. Can anyone assist me here or know where I might find a online service manual? Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Mike

Pull the codes. I would guess either bad MAF or or TPS. Until you have the codes, its just a guessing game.

Problem was solved. It was the small piece of fuel hose in the tank. The hose had deteriorated and developed a small hole. The car runs great again. Thanks
