I just posted about the repairs made to my 88 Ram with throttle body. I was experiencing vapor lock when hot, and even though I had fuel pressure, it was not high enough to circulate gas back to the tank. I found that there was a split in the hose connected to the fuel pump inside the tank, I was only getting around 13 psi at the tank. Try hooking up a pressure gauge to the 5/16" hose coming out of the fuel tank. the pressure should be around 70 psi. (be sure to tighten all connections before checking!) You could also hook up a gauge to the inlet hose to the TB and plug one end....
