Check for vacuum leaks, set the timing and do a compression test.

Sounds like the accelerator pump in the carburetor. With the engine off look down into the carburetor. Open the throttle or have a helper press the accelerator pedal to the floor. You should see a steady stream of gasoline shoot down into the intake manifold. If not, your accelerator pump is bad. HTH. -Jim

Check for back pressure from the exhaust. Kids used to jam a potato up the tail pipe, the car wouldn't run. Maybe a collapsed muffler or pipe. Gary
