I have a 1972 dodge sportsman camper. Ive replaced the carburator, plugs, wires, fuel pump, fuel filter, rotor, and distributor cap. It starts good and runs ok until u put it in gear and it cuts off and cant figure out what the problem is. Can u help me?

Is the idle high enough? Are you able to keep it running if you try?
