replaced the spark plugs an now it's starts an runs but it
back fires an sometimes it will just go for a Lil bit an then
I'll be driving an just to get it up to 35 MPH I have to floor it
an it takes a while to get up to speed, it's not getting
enough power. Does anyone have any ideas on what this
could be?

How did the old spark plugs "LOOK" oily? dry, tan, etc. check your new plug wires . Engine Left to Right is numbered 1-2-3-4 cylinder numbers, NEXT firing order is 1-3-4-2 look down at the distributor it rotates counter clockwise. An Image is better here it is. Regards

One looked like it had a oily black residue, the rest where blackish grayish dirty spark plugs, also have not replaced the wires yet an they are in the right order
