My f150 coughed and died after driving a few miles. Started once more, and ran for 2 miles and died again. 351, carbureted engine.

WOULD IT DRIVE SORTA OK AT LOWER SPEEDS?

IS YOUR FUEL FILTER ONE OF THEM LITTLE BITTY ONES AT THE CARB?

IF IT AIN'T BEEN CHANGED IN A WHILE, DO IT. EVEN IF THIS AIN'T YOUR PROBLEM, A LITTLE PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE WON'T HURT NOTHIN'!

THIS WAS THE PROBLEM WITH Y DAD'S '76 F-150 W/ 351 WINDSOR

THE COUGH YOU MENTIONED DOES "SORTA" SOUND LIKE A FUEL ISSUETO VERIFY THIS, BEFORE YOU PUT THE FILTER ON, PUT 2 SPOONFULS OF GAS IN THE CARB AND SEE IT IT REALLY WANTS TO RUN.A LITTLE ANYWAY

IF IT DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. NO SPITS/ COUGHS/ SPUTTERS. JUST "DRY" OVER AND OVERS

WE WILL START CHECKING IGNITION POSSIBILITIES

GOT VOLTMETER?

LEMME KNOW WHAT YOU GOT THUS FAR
