Stalling ProblemsAre there any vacuum leaks? Inadequate fuel reaching carb, or carb not functioning properly.

If it sounds like it wants to start but dies when you let go of the key, it may have a bad ballast resister or Resister wire as when it is in the start position it by passes those items and when it is released to the on position it no longer by passes them so if it is bad the truck won't start..........................................

or it could be a bad power valve it sits on the under side of your carb looks like a big nut that has a fuel hose that goes to it this will cause you to have starting issues n you'll have to keep pumping the gas to get it to stay runing till its primed its fuel line up if you stop for more that 10 minutes you have to start the pumping thing again this is a easy fix save your starter n battery at the same time .....

Sounds like a fuel delivery problem. Start with replacing the fuel filter then have a fuel pressure test done. It could be a faulty fuel pump.

I could not find anything right with it, neither, I think, could Winston Smith. Orwells prophesy of life in a Totalitarian State was a classic. If you could have a quiet chat with a few thinking people from North Korea they would agree.
