Have replaced Fuel Pump, Fuel Filters, rebuilt Carb, new Coil, Voltage Regulator, Distributer, Battery, alternator and done a complete tuneup. It runs good on the highway but hesitates and stalls when taking off from a stop, but not all the time, especially when my mechanic drives it, it won't act up. Does it just not like me? I'm ready to drive it off a cliff !

Here's a quote from amy Chilton's manual for 1980-1987.
"Several types of fuel filters are used. One is located in the fuel tank of all the vehicles and is part of the fuel guage assembly. Second is a sealed paper element, in-line unit; mechanical system- located on the engine (above the fuel pump) or electrical system- located in front of the fuel tank. Third is a paper element, in-line fuel filter/vapor separator, housed in a fuel resevoir. Normally, the in-tank filter does not require changing. If it does, the fuel tank must be removed. " This thing you describe sounds like the typical Chrysler in-line filter of its day. It is nothing more than the same generic in-line plastic see-thru filter you buy for your lawn mower except in the 70's and 80's it was covered in metal and had a Chrysler part number. A lot of guys added an extra filter in those days, it wasn't the best system. I would remove the outlet line and turn the fuel pump on, see if you get fuel. Replace if needed.
try taking a jumper wire form the positive post on the coil and run it to the poss side of your batt
if it works for you try running a new wire to the poss post
and get new coil
hi had a problem like that once and it drove me nuts
found out that the poss wire to the coil would heat up and cause it
I replace that wire and it worked out for me
but the easy check is to run the jumper wire first
get back to me if this helps
Question, does it stall, or bog? A few things come to mind. You say the carb. is new, what is the cfm of the carb.? Could be too much carb. for the cam. It could be a problem with the accl. pump on the carb. dumping too much fuel on take off. Have you checked the fuel pressure at the carb. also? You say you checked the timing and vac. advance, but is the timing set high enough? Usually this is a sign of too much fuel being dumped. If you have the chance, try another carb. Let me know.
Have you done a back pressure test on it? If you have no idea what I'm talking about, unbolt exhaust at heads or before the catalitic converter/converters. Try starting then driving it then. If that solves your problem, your catalitic converter/converters are clogged.
