'75 Chevy 3/4 ton 4x4 350 ignition?

1975 Chevy 3/4 ton 4x4 w/350. ~15,000 miles on rebuilt.

After truck is driven for 15-20 minutes the engine begins missing and sputtering when under load. The engine will idle fine. I replaced plugs and fuel pump to no avail.

How's the ignition system? Cap and rotor? Wires? etc,etc?

next time the problem occurs disconnect the vacum advance if it runs better you likely have a bad pickup coil in distributer, but could likely be bad plug wires or cap and rotor as joe said.

Sounds like cap/rotor problem. Look for hairline crack in cap.

I third the motion sounds like a bad wire to me.
