1964 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty special will die if I gear it to drive, and it will have a hart time to start up again

Hello guys, I’m to the point of throwing the towel, I took my caddy to a mechanic that apparently he doesn’t know what he is doing, I was told that I need to clean de carburetor which it was done by the mechanic, now he is telling me that the cars stars but when he put car in Drive the car will stall unless he give more gas ,  now he want for me to get a new carburetor, he make me buy new parts, but I’m sure that he want to rip me off, I will like to know what may be causing the car to stall, I’m despertarte And don’t know what to do. Thank you for any help,

Did the engine ever run with the present carb and electric fuel pump you now are using before your low end engine build was done 

Russ is good with electric pumps in our year cars so tell him which pump you have especially if it was just installed in the car

If the mechanic said the carb gets clogged with gas, then that tells me it is flooding out. You either have too much fuel pressure or the floats are set wrong.  What electric fuel pump did you put on?

Sounds like the points and timing are out of adjustment
When was the engine tuned up last time ? 
What was the car doing for you to bring it to a shop for repair ?
