Why does engine turn over but not start until put in neutral and rolled forward?

It also stalls occasionally when idling. Is it likely the crankshaft position sensor or might it be something else?

I've recently had the ignition and carb serviced.

I want to point you to the torque converter clutch lock-up solenoid, or the torque converter itself, but that is speculation.

Your truck needs some testing, and no amount of me guessing at what it could be will help.

Sorry, it is just one of those issues that needs the vehicle present for diagnosis.
