253 stalls when put in gear

I have been having trouble every time I put the trimatic in gear in my LX the engine stalls.I have been working on these things for years and am stumped.I have changed carby replaced and checked vacuum lines changed vacuum module on box, it is not idle car run great also has new carby base gasket..
Has any body ever had a busted torque converted which caused the engine to stall. If I rev it up and bang into gear drives perfect up and down the gears but will stall if I slow down before I stop

Carby base may be warped, it does happen a lot, and a new gasket may still not take up the gap, so when the engine is cold, start it and spray some fuel around the carby base, and if the engine picks up revs, then the base is leaking.
I have had to do this a number of times.
Use a trigger spray bottle but don't set the thing on fire.

Is the Idle Speed high enough?
Is the vacuum advance correctly connected and working?
Is the TVS correctly plumbed and aorking proprly?

Torque Converters can fail by having the elements touch each other.
I would check the TVS first.
