Roger, on the more info thing!
Is your truck overheating?
A parts store flush helps none an a really caked up radiator. Seek a pro radiator shop, they will dissassemble and rod out the lines!
As for fuel to carb. Watching the clear filter is no indication of flow.I have found that with a little extra fuel line, you can elevate beside a filter that appears to be "Empty". The filter will fill, the real test is to remove the line from the carb. Introduce it into a vessel, crank up and time how long it takes to fill to a SPECIFIED AMOUNT when you crank up
This TEST and other troubleshooting can be found in a CHILTON'S or HAYNES Repair manual. About $30 and are a world of help and explanations.
If I had to guess at your problem, I would say either:
Carburator adjustments or a VACUUM LINE ISSUE
IGNITION MODULE ISSUEIt can be removed and tested at Advance Auto or Auto zone. Test it 5-7 times to warm it up. If it fails once, after 4th time, get another. Test the new one, before you leave the store. TRUST ME!
Another "FREE MECHANIC". Got your attention. Is a Small time Auto Salvage Yard. The Employees are usually eager to find your problem. Especially if they might DO BETTER than your last Encounter with someone wearing a title!
