I think your engine has a vacuum leak, check all of your hoses, and carb fittings.
If your engine cannot get enough vacuum it will not be able to draw enough fuel to run.

    Every Engine relies on Vacuum to draw fuel or fuel air mixture in.
    Fuel injected or otherwise.
    If your vehicle has a vacuum leak then it will act like yours is acting.
    Just a shot in the dark over the blind internet ;-)

Change the coolant temp sensor,the one for the computer.also a leaking injector will drain fuel into the engine which shows up on a hot engine which does not want lots of fuel to start but a cold one likes it.Also a leaking pressure regulator could leak fuel into the intake sitting hot.

A wide open throttle cuts off power to the fuel pump.
Is it possible one of the injectors is flooding the engine ?

How to idol down a 4.3 v 6 throttle body motor in a 1993 chevy astro mini van.

Sometimes a car idles high because the mass airflow sensor doesnt work and then the throttle sensor assumes a default position of wide open. Maf, Map, and tps are connected.

Hesitates at wide open throttle

Could be as simple as new wires. Try turning on the truck at night and check to see if your wires are not arching to the engine block/manifold. Trust me if the wires are bad you'll see it at night. If they are, they need to be replaced along with the spark plugs as this will foul the plugs because of impropper detonation.
