Have you checked the plugs, plug wires, dist cap and rotor? Also does it have the points style ignition in it? If so I would seriously consider changing it over to electronic. Most kits are real easy to install and relatively cheap. The gains from the upgrade greatly out way the cost to do it.

Timing, Distributer points and fuel mixture all add up and work together, Set points, then timing, and then fuel mixture after checking Plugs wires and whether Points are actually good...
