Besides your coil and Duraspark II control module, also check your distributor, to see if your pickup wheel is going bad, or is bad I had that problem with the pickup wheel in my distributor on my 78 F-150 Ranger Lariat Trailer Special with a 351M / 400 engine. Check that out, also the Duraspark II control module can go bad, but when they go bad the truck won't start at all. I had learned that on a 77 F-350 Custom with a 351M engine. When it would crank and wouldn't start I knew it was that control box, and they're not all that expensive about 25 - 30 dollars for one, and they're not that hard to change out, also check your connections, and make sure they're clean and tight. For a bad connection can cause your problems also. Hopefully you find this rather helpful

I had a ignition module play games on a 79 Mustang I had, be cruising just fine, then out of the blue just die. Give it a bit of time, fire right up like nothing was wrong and go for a while again. Definitely need to verify it has fuel when it does die though, as the cap could possibly be not letting air in, and then build a vacuum in the tank.

I've had ignition modules cause stalling. 10 minutes to cool down and it would start again. Put 1/2" spacers between the fender and the module to let cool air behind it.

after 30 years of service in Old Orange, I had to replace the module. Can't complain about that, except when it died I was going for a nice evening drive and ended up having to get a tow home, ack! ($90)

You have received all the right suggestions. But as it is intermittent, you will have to do a diagnosis when the problem exists. First determine if it is fuel or spark. As was suggested, when it happens, look in the throat of the carburetor and move the throttle. If you see fuel squirt, then the problem probably is spark. It sounds like it could be temperature related. For fuel problems look for fuel pump, tank venting, vapor lock, cracked fuel lines, or congested filters. On the spark side look for coil, distributor, broken or badly connected primary wires, or the most likely, the control module. Mine once quit out in the AZ desert. Fortunately I had a spare. If you're running a semi-conductor controlled ignition system ALWAYS CARRY A SPARE. Try to do a good diagnosis instead of just changing parts. In the long run it will save you money.
