I've put an electric fuel pump, rerouted the gas line, cleaned the carb, tuned it up with new plugs, changed parts in the distributor. I runs great then when it gets hot it cuts out or when you come to a red light and stop, it will stall but then restarts,( if you "double" foot it on gas and brake and give it a little more gas it "sometimes" is OK) and will start but when you give it gas it is like it is not getting gas. I have had it to three different shops and they can't figure it out.

Check the; float level, the accelerator pump setting, and the choke pull-off setting (if equipped). The problem may be related to fuel line vapor lock - try to wrap the fuel line with high temperature wrap - as insulation from the excess heat.

Thank you, I will try that! I also heard that it could be the coil, when it heats up it runs irregular. I changed that and will try and run the truck tomorrow,. If that isn't it, I will try your suggestion! Thanks again!!!.
