1972 c10 stops running after 40 mins


Asked by Brian Sep 30, 2019 at 11:04 AM about the 1972 Chevrolet C/K 10

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1972 runs great but after about 40 mins of
running it stops. It will turn over but not start. If I
leave it for a while then it will run again. Before it
stops it lurches.
