Default cutting out

I have a 41 engine it is a stock engine and when you accelerate just when the engine starts pulling good it cuts out . I have changed the coil even put a new divorced coil on it. I have changed the inner caps on the distributor changed the wires,plugs,points checked all connections. I even put a new carb on it. the engine has around a 900 miles on it fresh fuel good compression and fuel pressure.The engine starts quick at any temp when it idles it is fine starts cutting out about 1/3 throttle. Now what do I do

Sounds like its not getting enough gas. Perhaps an air leak between the fuel pump and the gas tank?

HT breakdown between the rotor and the distributor shaft. Try a new rotor and some shrink tubing on the shaft.

Can't guarantee this is the problem, but it could be. From my experience, 90% of my problems have been ignition related, and 90% of those have been HT side related.
