Hi Syd, stalled 8-10 times, what a nightmare. I suggest you start and run the car and while parked, slowly increasing the throttle while someone watches the fuel bowl. If it is pinholes in the fuel line, the bubbles should increase with RPM’s as fuel flow tries to increase, the fuel actually chokes down and the engine slowly drops in rpm and dies-running smoothly as it does. If that happens, inspect the fuel tank and system as Greg suggests. If someone is on throttle and as the car dies, it bucks, or surges or perhaps bubbles are less evident in the bowl, it may be a carb issue, such as sticking float, etc.

Best of luck troubleshooting-John
