Could it be something like the rotor or distributor cap? My 87 ran really rough until I replaced them. Rotor was really beat up.

they are almost new too ! last time it ran, it seem to starve for fuel, just had no power, made a BIG mistake took it to local auto repair, they said they could fix it !!! they called the next day said it was running, when i got there it wouldn't start, left it for a month still not running, today still not running ! am waiting on a new hall effect sender, we'll see then !
