Question

Hey Guys,

I need some help. I own a 1984 Z28. Has a 305 engine. The previous owner got rid of the crossinjection & Comp. It now has a carb & a mechanical distribiuter. My car drives fine (when cold) but after 20 minutes it starts stalling and stops running. I changed the platina & condensor, spark plugs, replaced termostat, drained radiator and refilled the coolant. The water pump is O.K.
The fan is also O.K. I checked the oil...also o.k. The coolant hoses are new. But still it stops running when it gets hot.

help help help anyone....

Not exactly the same problem, but close. Have you checked the fuel filter in the
carb and/or the one in the fuel tank (if
it has one)?
