i had dirt put into my gas tank awhile back... since then i have tried over n over to get the truck running.. i have resulted in cleaning out the gas tank, new filter, blowing out the gas lines, blew out the fuel pump, and stuck on a new carb.... so now i have got the truck to a state where it will idel for abut 2min... and then shut off but wont start again... now im clueless... i also changed the rotor n cap... anybody have any ideas or some time they could lend to give a hand???

It's an electronic idle control on those. Try running power straight from the batt to the connection on the carb if it idles up and starts to run your problem is in the idle circuit somewhere. Just have to trace it back to find your break. Happened to mine and that was all it was.
