Question about Cars & Trucks
Check the Tank vent, If it's starving or cutting out it may be creating a vacuum on the tank. Open the tank a bit and see if it still starves at higher RPM. If it runs fine, Located the vent tube and lean it out or clean the vent on the gas cap either way. If it's still starving for fuel, then look at the petcock. If it's one of the vacuum diaphragm auto types, the diaphragm is probably bad and will need to be replaced. Dump it and get a manual valve.

I think the word carburetor and ford falcon was mentioned which used a mechanical fuel supplied system. check for a cracked fuel supply line from the fuel tank to the steel body supply line.

Testimonial: "thanks i will replace the module and get back to you, i have checked fuel press. etc and could not determine a problem, but this seems like a solution"
Undo the fuel inlet Banjo bolt and carefully fish with a piece of wire bent at the end (as pictured) and fish out the filter (under the spring) wash and replace. Can be very fiddly, so patience is a must.
