1980 Ford Bronco Custom 8Cyl5.0L - Engine
1979 Ford Bronco - Interesting Problem
I am guessing at this point. I have tried everything I know. I own a 1979 Ford Bronco with a 351M. Recently the vehicle began shutting off while driving. Now I cannot get the truck to stay running. I have replaced the distributor, carb, cap, and rotor. I have checked all the vac lines, it is gettting fuel and will run when gas pedal is applied. However if you let the truck idle it shuts down. I cannot get this truck to keep running. If it does run, as soon as I put it in gear (manual trans) the vehicle dies. I am at a loss?

    Check the fuel pressure when putting into gear, could be the fuel pump is the problem.

    Last week - as stated there is no problem with fuel or fuel delivery.

    Sounds like you have thoroughly addressed the fuel delivery possibilities... It would seem
    that the electrical side of the equation would be to replace the ignition control module -/- "brain box"

    ailed alternator diodes can cause stalling on older Fords. You can have the diodes checked without replacing the alternator and then find out it was not the cause.
