If it is doing that, should start after a few tries to get fresh fuel up to the carb. Fuel pump or electric pump? Used to have a little old Airtech electric fuel pump that used to do that, never had the issue once I switched to a Holley pump. Did he check for squirting fuel when he has the problem?

Yeah, he was burning boxes.  Truck wouldn't start at all until we did our work after he replaced the box.

Unfortunately, he didn't check for spark like I asked him to when it wouldn't start, he just walked home.  So, I wait until the next time it dies.

Yes, and if the pick-up dies(hall effect), there won't be any spark because the power doesn't have anywhere to ground out (or it's internally ground and looks like a bad box, either way), so the hall effect needs to be checked out.

Pretty much, but he's learning.  Know what he REALLY learned last weekend?  Dad's kinda smart about vehicles.

His comment to me when I found the cheesy 14 gauge charge lead "it's been working fine".  Now it's "my lights are a bit brighter, my turn signals never have worked so good, and it just flat runs better".

Yeah, they always get surprised when things go from running to running like they are supposed to.
