I went through the same problem as you replaced everything you did, even changed the coil in the distribitor. follow the neg battery wire to where it bolts into the block for ground , there should be two wires , take bolt out , take both wires and clean them , then sandpaper where it bolts in block , also inside when you remove cover for engine there are two ground wires to head , remove and clean ,... Fixed mine 95 dodge b3500 almost bought a new computer ... and replaced so many parts and it was a ground problem...

Take off your inline fuel filter , dump out gas , if it dumps out huge amount of dirt the it's the fuel filter . It cranks and runs a while because it is using less gas until you get going then needs more gas but clogs after running a while
