I have a 1965 Chevrolet C10 pickup with a Gen 1 early 80's Chevy 350 5.7L V8. I am having problems keeping it running. Sometimes while driving down the road it will just turn off and I will have to wait a while to get it started. Sometimes it will start, sometimes it won't. Currently I can't even get it to run for more than 4 or 5 seconds before it dies out. If I get it running and pump it too much to try to keep it running it backfires up the carburetor. I have replaced the gas tank, all of the fuel line, the fuel pump (Holley Red now), fuel filter and am currently rebuilding the carburetor. Holley 4 barrel 4160 600 cfm. Fuel line is routed away from any heat sources as is the pump. Pump is also mounted below the gas tank. If rebuilding the carburetor doesn't help, what could the problem possibly be as I will have replaced every part of the fuel delivery system from tank to engine?
