79 Traveler Fuel Question?

I recently purchased a 1979 International Scout Traveler. It is in great condition. However,I am having one problem. Occasionaly, as I am driving down the road it starts to hesitate and sputter, as I accelerate, it shuts off! I also seem to be having trouble with warm starts. Are they co-related. Do I have a fuel line, choke, carborator problem? Where do I begin? Help!

Re: 79 Traveler Fuel Question?

What does your water temp read when this happens? It almost sounds like a fuel delivery problem or a vaccume problem. I'm asking about water temp because of the heat the motor makes. If this happens on a fly it's a fuel preasure or vaccume prob. Try checking vaccume and the fuel preasure first though.
