Your post kind of reminds me of something my Dad used to tell me when I was a little kid and had a sore arm from playing baseball or some kind of ache or pain. I'd say "Dad, my arm really hurts.....when I do this" (moving it in some sort of weird manner). His answer was always..."well Craig, don't move your arm that way!"
Your car shouldn't stall when you pull the spout out. Like previously mentioned, your timing must be off. How easy does it start? Does it run on (diesel) when you shut it down? Find out what the timing is at idle with the spout in, I'll bet you're off. If all else fails to provide any answers for you, follow my Dad's advice, and just leave that spout connector in!
