I have a 71 Buss.
Today driving up the road the engine stalled.
It starts right back up but stalls when I accelerate.
Fuel filter looks like it's clean.
Do you
have the same problem?

Check fuel pressure is filter full of fuel? Can you slowly accelerate? Check spark see if it is blue/white check the points gap
