1989 dodge b250 van 3.9 l auto carb

had problem while driving .i would start to slow down and could not excelerate . if i pulled over and shut off key and restarted .it would start right up and go ok this kept happening, changed fuel filter. worked for a day ....

had to drop gas tank , pump sock was dirty. changed sock. worked for a day, now when i start it up it has no exceleration when in gear and drives at 10 miles per hr. now whats gone wrong. the only thing i can think of was when i dropped the tank a hose poped off the preasure releif and rollover valve . since it had two ends i had no way to tell which end it came off of .i just put it on one end would that cause the present problem . one end of the valve is long with a small ridge like a gas filter line .thats the side i think i hooked it up to. the other side is stubby with a bigger ridge and the inside has a cross

un hook the line at the carb and place a rubber line over it and into a clean container, then either start or crank the engine for about 30 seconds to see if you are getting a adaquate amount of fuel to the carb. should be at least 1 quart in 30 seconds. check shop manuel to see if it lists the volume required for this test, if the volume is low then you may have a hose installed incorrectly on the tank.
