    Default 1985 with 350 died

    Hi folks; I have an 85 with a 350. I was almost home and it would die then run, die then run about 6 or 7 times. I did manage to coast into my driveway. It was almost like it was out of gas but that isn't the problem. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks; but gas is not the problem; It runs on propane, no filter to get clogged, carburator is not even used. It acted like a truck running out of gas, but fuel is not the problem. Someone suggested that it might be the electronic module under the distrubutor cap. But not sure.
