Post Stalling on a hill

My car stalls and runs rough whenever I'm on any decent incline. I have adjusted the floats on my edelbrock performer. Any other hints as to what it could be?

What makes you think that this is a fuel problem? (No disrespect intended) Does the engine cut out under hard acceleration? Could be an electrical problem, wires, plugs, coil.
Coils are tricky creatures especially if you have only one...(some vehicles have several now) they tend to cut out when they get hot or under load like you describe...old coils that is, or some of the foreign made ones. I have checked several coils and found they check ok when they are cool but will fail test when hot!
