Sounds like fusible link. It's a thick (thicker than normal) wire coming from battery to junction block on firewall. They burn through and/or break down internally - you can replace it with an inline 30amp fuse & holder.

A simple test is to start the truck and the (be carful her) disconnect the Pos cable and see if stays running. If it shuts off when not connected it is the generator, alternator that has gone bad. See after the truck starts the truck should stay running on its own and also charge the battery. Hope this helps.

If you have gas coming out of the top of the carburetor then you could have either a bad float, a stuck float or a bad needle and seat, all of which are inside the carburetor. The float rises with the level of fuel and shuts off the incoming fuel by pushing the needle valve against the seat thus stopping any more fuel from entering the carburetor until the fuel level drops slightly at which time the needle moves slightly away from the seat and allows more fuel to enter again. You could also have a piece of crud that has gotten between the needle and seat which will prevent the valve from fully closing but that's pretty rare. You will probably need to have the carburetor cleaned, inspected, and have a repair kit installed to fix the problem.

No if the clutch was bad you could shift it into the gears but would not move at all if the clutch shattered. However if your meaning you can't get the gear selector to move into gears then you have a different problem.

usually timing just loosen your distributer ,the thing wth all your spark plug wires going to it and turn slightly and keep testing your truck until you get it where you want it. after each slight move of half inch or so tighten it back up and fire the truck up to see if it dies.the distributer has a shaft on it and you will see like a half inch bolt to loosen on the intake manifold so yo can turn it
