Piece of crap in the fuel line ? Sometimes the fuel line will rot out at the top where it goes over the rear axle , it won't leak because it's at the top but it will suck air


Probably killed your fuel pump. Fuel pumps use the gas in the tank to keep it cooled, and after a 3 hour drive you ran out and the fuel pump ran hot. I'd start by checking fuel pressure is within acceptable range.


Uhh, Ken. It's a 1977 F100. Most likely got crap in the carb.
