I can't see that this question was ever addressed anywhere, however this exact thing happened to me today.
Got my new rear window installed and was driving the truck up the driveway from my shop and it sputtered a couple times then died. Would not re-start. Tried to fire once or twice but died immediately. When I popped the hood to check a few things there was a very loud ticking/clicking in the area of the carb. Towed the truck back down to the shop but it fired up and ran and the ticking in gone at the carb. It's been fine since so I haven't been able to diagnose.
Could that potentially have been caused by the anti-dieseling solenoid? Does it have any control over the fuel pump?
The air cutoffs on these are vacuum operated right?
Pretty stumped but it has me worried to set out down the road in this thing now.
