    I own a 1985 , GMC Suburban , C1500, 350, 5.7L , and I took it on a long road trip this past weekend . Everything was fine, until I reached speeds of around 70mph . The truck started to hesitate as if it was it was not getting enough fuel, or as if it was misfiring . As I slowed down to around 55mph or so, it would some what clear out and stop what it was doing , and run better . As I accelerated , it would start doing it again .Ive hit a stump. I cant figure out what it is . Is it a Carb issue ? Maybe a fuel pump issue, not getting enough fuel at high speeds? Is it electrical? I just replaced all my spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor, and coil. Im clue less now . I hope I can find some answers here.

    Since you've ruled out the electrical side, my guess is the fuel filter.
