SOURCE: Fuel Filter blockage
the first time i sent this the system overloaded and i had to try again
it is located under the car just behind the diff right up high with push fuel joiners(possibly thread on one end) when i had the same problem, it was infact the fuel pump, because the AU use a fuel pump that requires fuel as a lubricant, it is located in a small pot in the fuel tank that is filled from your return line. if you run low on fuel they tend to run dry and wear out. i tested my pump pressure by fitting a VL inline injection pump. as this worked i replaced the fuel pump(which in an AU is a very nasty job) and have had no problems

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.

Most older cars have a mechanical fuel pump mounted to the side of the engine. Usually turns from the Cam or Crankshaft. i would check under the Valve Cover area. should be a small pump that is mechanically driven by the engine. probably half the size of your fist. Trace the fuel line from the carb to it. most oder cars have this set-up. I hope this helps you out. Never worked on a Ford Falcon. My 74 dodge B100 had that as well as my 78 Lemans. Good Luck!
