Why won't my tracer stay running

I have changed the plugs, cap and rotar and wires, along with a new fuel filter. Car runs for a while like for a couple miles and then it quits again. Acts like it runs out of fuel. Runs perfect and then all of a sudden runs rough and dies. Then later it will run again.
Do you
have the same problem?

Check fuel pump pressure. Check for vacuum leaks

That's what we were wondering. HOw do we check fuel pressure without buying a new pump in case that's not it.

Glad to help. NOTE: If you don't have a schrader valve, you need to tie in at the fuel pump.
