I didn’t test with the line removal method, but I did watch the squirters as I throttled it. On the upward incline it ran fine for about 5 minutes, then completely stalled out again. Wouldn’t start back til I got it to level.

Died again as soon as the front was inclined.

And again

And again

I’m suspecting now either a rubber fuel line sucking shut (although it didn’t appear to be...and the one near the fuel pump is new) OR something in the tank stopping up the outlet when it is tilted backwards.

It IS a 63 year old tank. And it has sat a while.

Just not too excited about dropping a wagon tank if I don’t have to.

Any thoughts?

I had the same problem one time. I disconnected the fuel line at the fuel pump and shot some compressed air in the line back to the tank and that cleared it up. If doing this remove fuel tank cap first. Also might be a partial blockage of the sock on your fuel sending unit ? weak fuel pump ? Try the easiest and the cheapest first. And then

I’ll do that. I saw that in the online article but I thought it was talking about blowing out the pump itself. I get it now.

Eventually this gets a full restoration, but it’s going to be a true survivor for a while.

I had the same problem but would stall when on level ground, the sock in the tank was blocked with what looked like a red type of soot.
Being in a sedan I removed the sender, blew out the lines with air, didn't have a problem after that.

The fuel gravity feed the pump going down hill. The pump has to suck going up hill. Check the pump.

As has been stated fuel is not gravity fed going uphill. There is a rubber diaphragm in the pump that does the pumping and like any rubber part is subject to failure from time and environment. Change the fuel pump.

I'll change the pump anyway just to be sure. Cheap part to replace. $72 including shipping from Eckler's. Ordered.
