Need help with 77 cj5 with v8 engine

My jeep will die while I'm driving I can take fuel filter off and but it back in and it fires right up and runs fine for a few days till it happens again. Any idea what could cause it to die

My guess would be that the fuel is vaporizing from the heat of the motor, and causing it to vapor lock and stall.

Try adding a section of 5/8" heater hose on the steel line from the pump to the filter, to insulate it from the heat of the motor.

That should cure your problem.
