Troubleshooting my 1950 Studebaker Champion

I have a stock 1950 Studebaker Champion.
(Flat head 6, 3 speed OD, 6 volt electric)

Early this summer I had an issue that I immediately presumed to be my carburetor.

The car is running rough like it has bad gas in it and dies.

I added five gallons of fresh gas to lean out the bad and added a bottle of dry gas just in case around the time it started stumbling.

I ordered a rebuild kit from one of the suppliers and completely rebuilt the carb.

I am still having the same problem.

I tend to tear things apart and rebuild until I have exorcised the demons.

I am looking for suggestions and input on other causes for this problem before I tear it all apart.

The car is sitting at a friends house approximately 40 miles north of me.

I would like to get it home.
