Asked by Feb 24, 2016 at 07:02 PM about the 1962 Chevrolet C/K 10

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1962 Chevy C10. [350 small block with msd drop in vacuum advance
distributor and a Carter  600-No Choke. 3 on the tree with overdrive.] New
keyed Ignition cylinder, new upgraded fuse box, clean set up. Runs Great.
Fires right up. But after 5-10 minutes of driving it bogs and then dies. I pull
over and after a little pumping, right as i release the pedal it fires back up.
Drives for 1-2 minutes and does it all over again. until it gets very hard to
start back up.

Do you have a fuel line ran too close to something hot? Might be vapor lock. Running a mechanical fuel pump or electric?
