I want to say THANK-YOU to everyone for helping me!!!!! I have finally got this thing running at highway speeds for a length of time, and was even able to pass other cars on the road.
Here is what was changed:
Dist. cap, Dist. rotor, Dist. base cap, spark plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filters (1 in the frame- 1 in the carb.), The Distr. itself, the pickup in the dist., the vac. advance, The Ign. module, All Rubber fuel lines, Oil and filter, both solenoids, and the last part that was replaced was the cause of the problem:
It was the FUEL PUMP!!!!!!!
I am so mad at myself for letting this happen. I know better than taking some one’s word for what they have done or not done. He did change the pump and it is new. The problem is that the fuel pressure drops off to 1psi. The new pump runs around 2.5-3.5 still on the low side but that might be in the way the regulator is set. I found out that Napa where the pump came from sells 2 versions a 1-4psi and a 5-7 psi model. I think that this is a 1-4psi model.
The next step is to see if it will pull the trailer if so I think we will make it there!!

Thank-you all SOOOOOOO MUCH;

Several years ago I had a car that did very much the same thing... Well for some reason I got the feeling I had a fuel pump issue so I pulled the line off the carb and stuck it in a gasoline proof cup, cranked the engine, got a trickle of fuel (not a jet like I expected) and a depression in the pool of fuel in the cup.. Like someone was blowing on it.. Yes, blowing on it,, through a straw.

Replaced the line from the tank to the fuel pump and all was well

The old line had about a thousand pin holes in it, not big enough to leak fuel, but more than large enough to suck air like a vacuum

Not suggesting it is your problem.. But what the heck, one more thing to check

Home is where I park it!
