just bought a 76 type 2. previous owner said after driving about 40-50 miles it would start to lag and he would stop and fill the tank with gas and the problem would go away for about 40-50 more miles.. I can't see myself stopping that much to fill up and was thinking it was removing the cap, (not putting in gas) that was remedying the problem. Using all the air in the tank and the engine was lagging trying to suck gas from the tank. What's your ideas?

how about a guess?
um not really familiar with anything that old but i would guess that maybe you might want to replace the fuel pump (if it has one. like i said not too familiar) or check the fuel filter or just mainly get a good check of the whole fuel system, lines etc..
