Getting dirty on that side doesn't mean you're running too rich. The exhaust will always shoot some oil out even if it's lean and oil attracts dirt. As for your stalling, you gotta give more info because as you described it, it can mean many things.

You may be leaning out at 1/2 tank - common on the maxx series trucks. I recommend going with the OFNA 9.5 fuel tank conversion. PM me for more info on this easy yet effective mod.
