All the work you did and not a fuel filter
Check the fuel system
And ignition wires

Good luck

Thanks for u r reply !But i'm still stuck.
Replacing the coil was the 1st thing I did and the truck ran great for 2 days after that.
Then it bogged down and began to backfire through the carb. It will idle fine but as soon as I accellerate it sputters and backfires so rough its undriveable.

when the truck is idiling with the air filter off looking into the barrells of the carb it appears to be dry as a bone. The carb is an aftermarket mikuni
