Sounds like a fuel pump issue. Low pressure in tank pump failure.

You might also have a mechanical.

HI, start by, pull fuel line off at the carb. put end in a bottle and turn the motor over (remove coil wire so it don't try to start). you should be a good squart of fuel into the bottle if not pump is bad or fuel filter or line is plugged.
good luck

I'll have to agree; a truck that won't run will leave most people in awe. I'll also agree with everyone that it's a lack of fuel problem. Just check everything in the fuel supply and you will find the problem.
