performance problems on 1990 Dodge D150

actuall, I have a 1986 d150 with a 318 engine. It has been set up for about a year. Now when I run it, it just stops running like it has run out of gas. New fuel pump, filter, fuel pump relay, ignition coil, 2 other peices that I can not remember. Any suggestions?
