I have a 1981 FORD F350 it runs good until you are pulling something or you are going up a hill. Then it bogies down like it wont to die. Can you help me with this?

ARE YOU CURRENT WITH SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE?

LIKE "REAL" TUNE-UPS AND SUCH. NOT A PART HERE AND THERE

YOU FAILED TO LIST YOUR ENGINE. IF IT'S DIESEL, I'M NOT GONNA DO YOU ANY GOOD. MAYBE ANOTHER TECH WILL JUMP IN!

ARE YOU ABLE TO DO THE WORK---TIMING---TUNING CARB----LOOKING FOR VACUUM LEAKS--GOT TUNE UP TOOLS, LIKE A TIMING LIGHT, AND A PORTABLE DWELL/ TACH METER?

YOUR TURN

It probably has a 460 and my guess is the higher elevation that your climbing starves the carb Of fuel I would also look at charging and starting this happened to my truck after O'Reillys sold me a manual starter when I asked for a automatic and I broke the mounting ear off of two and I told them to give me my old one back
