DODGE RAM GAS PROBLEM

1986 Dodge Ram • 60,000 miles

Have a 1986 Dodge Ram 250. Has 360 engine. Used for plowing. After plowing for about an hour will cut out and stall when under power doesn't matter if going forward or backward. Have changed coil, pick up coil and fuel filter. Wait 15 or 20 minutes will start without giving any gas or choke. Any ideas?

The variety of parts suggests you haven't diagnosed anything. First find out if you're losing spark. If not, you might suspect a plugged pickup screen in the gas tank. They will collapse and block fuel flow, then expand after few minutes and work for awhile again.
