Why does my RV8 engine stop at 3000 rpm?

It hasn’t been getting worse over a period of time it just stops at approx 3000 rpm and then you have to change gear and it accelerates fine until it hits 3000rpm again.

What happens when engine revs over 3000rpm?

Trigger sensor for the ignition module, in the distributor, could be dying. If it is, then it could go for months like this before suddenly packing in altogether one day.

What kind of engine does a Chevy 3500 have?

The Chevy is likely to be a 3500 (about like E350), maybe the newer 4500 series (equivalent to E450) but the only engine offered would be the 6.0L V8. That engine will outdo the Ford 5.4 and come close to the V10. The Chevy handles better than a stock Ford and has a much more user-friendly cab.
