AF ratio can be off lean/rich and the charging system can be sub standard old '82 its almost like restoring when you service these vintage vehicles. Check all the wiring connections and harness.. is the tail pipe black and sooty..fluffy carbon =rich remove a spark plug and read it or use a gas analyzer for AF ratio HC CO Nox C02 if available.
