lost power. Will hardly stay running at an

enough to shift its spudders so much i have
to down shift again. It will do about 35mph

Should check the fuel pressure, may be low indicating a bad fuel pump.

It has dual tanks and has same issue on both tanks. I havent checked the fuel pressure. I will do that when I get off work. Do you know what the pressure should be by chance?
