Sounds like a torque converter issue. did you have transmission work done at all? It may also be a low compression or tune up problem. Check and make sure your getting a true spark and the timing is correct. make sure your compression is good. if that all checks out then I would look at the transmission. Are you able to get her to go at all if you give it gas and drop her in to gear? Or just ir just stop dead? can you push the truck at all or does it seem locked up? I would put a fair bet that the torque converter is locked causing the stall out.

Raise the idle speed up a little then put in gear,if not stall then the Idle speed is too slow or rough,try adjusting the carburetor if so.Or check to see if vacuum leaks or correct timing.Hope this helps.
