my 66 continental stalls on me, gas issues!
my 66 lincoln 462cu 7.6L stalls on me intermittenly I checked the fuel line from fuel filter to gas tank it is not clogged car has a brand new holly carb, new fuel filter the fuel looks clean no signs of rust in gas tank when I'm driving the car intermittenly wants to stall on me almost like carb or something is not recieving fuel someone recommended installing an electric fuel pump due to the fact that the car is'nt a daily driver but I want to keep the car as original as possible can it be the original fuel pump that needs replacing? any idea what can be causing this. Thankyou

have you checked the filter in the gas tank that is on the end of the fuel pickup line . have seen them varnished over. they will let gas filter through slowly , but restrict a large flow.

check your points and coil ground maybe a bad wire lead

If you have a rubber hose from the gas tank to the fuel line that goes to the fuel pump........or one at the fuel pump that goes to the carb , one of two things could be causing this to happen while driving.
The hoses could be soft and getting sucked shut,or there could be a small piece of hose that is ruptured on the inside causing an obstruction basiclly acting like a check valve.
