sounds electrical, have you tried checking you electronic ignition brain box, had similiar problem and then one day it just quit, replaced the box and got rid of problem.
i have this truck and the same problem, i feel it is the ignbition module on the distributor base....i am changing mine so i will let you know...
did it fix your trouble?
It's the hall effect sensor in the distributor. It gets hot and fails. Buy a new distributor for $95. Takes hour to replace. Just did it on my truck. It only stalled or wouldn't start when the AC was on and heated up the sensor.
