If you have access to a multimeter check the power terminal. It should be at least 13+ volts if the alternator is good while the car is running. The battery will not maintain more then generally 12 volts while the vehicle is off. Be careful not to drain the battery to far as it will damage it.

Are you getting spark? You've put a 2001 engine into a 1986 body. The 2001 engine ran with an engine control module (ECM), the 1986 doesn't have that. The 1986 probably has an electronic ignition module that works with the 1986 coil and 1986 reluctor/distributor. You may want to compare the two distributors and the two coils.

had this exact thing occur in my car a couple of days ago. I lifted the bonnet and the air filter pipe was blown off from the filter box and a hole was in the box the air filter sits in. This was caused by a back fire problem my car has . I put the air filter pipe back on the box and have a piece of timber and gaffa tape covering the huge hole and my car runs ok until I can yet it serviced and fixed .

check the fuel pressure and the float level as it may be too low or trying to flood the engine . check for vacuum leaks in all hoses.. Check that the carby is tight on the manifold.

Well first you go to the fuse box and find stop light see if it has blown if not go to the rear and remove the globe holder plug assy which has either double or single light bulb if double get test light and touch either wire and get someone to turn on the ign switch [on but not start] and also put foot on the brake pedal ,if the test light dont light test the other wire base ,if no light comes on then go to the stop light switch mostly on the brakeline connection box under the bonnet or it could have a brake switch in the cab above the brake pedal and that will have either a broken wire or switch unserviceable .

Sounds like vapor lock. In laymans terms the engine heat causes the fuel flow to stop. Once everything cools off the truck starts. Insulating around the fuel line seems to be the solution. Try aluminum foil. Or perhaps a reroute of the fuel line to get it away from direct engine heat.

check the bulbs then check power to the bulb contacts .as it can be a break in the wire were the trunk/boot opens up.

Not too difficult.
You unscrew the trim retainer, and there is a button on top of the switch behind the dash panel you push to release the knob and rod.

You may think all lines are good. Replace them if they are rubber. Cut the farthest piece loose from the truck and drop in a gallon of gas and see if it picks it up. A new fuel pump should.
