What's your fuel pressure look like? You can rent/buy a gauge for this for a bout $30.

If it helps I was wheeling and it usually mis fires and hesitates when I wheel since the distributor cap gets wet, so I dry it and its fine. But this time it was mis firing and hesitating alot and then it stalled and wouldn't start anymore... CPS?

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...
