Rough starting and stalling

Replace the spark plugs and get the ignition timing checked and corrected. Get the specific gravity of battery checked. Check and if required replace the fuel filter.

Engine Sputters

This sounds more like an ignition problem if you have the service manual that came with the truck it has diagnostics to check your coil, igniter, distributor, wires etc.. also you may want to look at your coil wire going to the distributor and if there is an in-line resistor replace the wire as the resistor is probably bad and when it heats up it interupts voltage to the distributor, wires, plugs etc.. when it cools down it will work for a while-- probably more often when the ambient air temperature is hot or above 90 degrees farenheit.

Engine dies numerous times a day.

Have you thought about it possibly being the engine that has something wrong with it? Have you checked the cylinders?
