Commodore stalling at operating temp

I know this is a ford forums but I'm trying to help my mates old man with a problem and running out of ideas. He drives an 86(?) VK Commodore 202 with electronic igntion. Problem with it is that it idles fine, drive good until it gets to operating temperature. It just stalls. This is only under load though, if you put it back in nuetral it will just sit there and idle perfectly. We checked the coil with a multimeter and it had around 8 ohms resistance which is pretty much what it's meant to be as far as I know. I don't think its a vacuum problem, I thought initally maybe as you have vacuum at idle and lose it under load, but wouldn't the car miss if there was a vacuum leak? Well any help would be appreciated. Please don't reply saying "it does this becasue it's a holden".

It does this because it's a holden lol j/k

Ever think maybe the choke is dodgy? What about the idle, whats it set at? Does it run rough just before it stalls, or does it just stall instantly?

Re: Commodore stalling at operating temp

coils are very cheap and might be worth trying one from a wreckers.
is it a carby model ? the accelerator pump may be stuffed and its getting a big lean out which makes it stall and may not be as bad when cold because of the rich choke condition. thats easy to check by looking down the carby and opening the throttle, you should see a squirt of petrol spray down.

If it's injected check fuel pressure.
