1986 ford ranger sputtering and stalling out?

I have a 1986 ford ranger supercab and it seems to run for like 5-10 mins and then it starts to surge and eventually stalls out. We have replaced many parts including the fuel injectors and sensors also the fuel pump. It seems to pour out white smoke and the spark plugs 1,3, and 4 are wet with fuel any ideas on how to fix it i have heard many others have this problem but no solution has surfaced?

Engine stalling out when hot


I would have the control module checked. It is mounted to the back of the distributor. You can take it by any autozone to be tested. This component heats up and then starts to break down inside,, when it cools back off then you are able to start back up until it goes completely out.
