Well over that lat month or so we replaced the following: carb(reman) fuel pump, put in a electric fuel pump, filter, checked the strainer in the tank, spark plugs, sparkplug wires, distributor, coil, and blew out any and every line we could find.
We then asked the former Chrysler dealer over here and he did say vapor lock was a common issue with them, and ethanol boils at a little under 100F, while the thermostat opens around 180. Next, if we can get it running reliably, is we will try Ethanol free gas. It'll be spendy but it may be the solution to our problem. (We have a 550 bulk tank and it would come out to something like another $245(per refill),unless we can get the cenex in Sidney MT to haul some over, then it wouldn't be so bad.)
It is funny that we don't have as bad of problems with our IH, Ford and GM vehicles and equipment...
