ENGINE STALLS WHEN I ACCELERATE

1971 Volkswagen Van

Engine Performance problem
1971 Volkswagen Van 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 95000 miles

I have a 71 Buss.
Today driving up the road the engine stalled.
It starts right back up but stalls when I accelerate.
Fuel filter looks like it's clean.

Check fuel pressure is filter full of fuel? Can you slowly accelerate? Check spark see if it is blue/white check the points gap
