My truck has no get up, what should I do?

Asked by Pruitt93 Aug 26, 2020 at 08:55 AM about the 1990 Ford F-250 2 Dr XLT Lariat Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 90 f250 is lacking in power. On take off it
putters then gets up. Going up hills without a
running start even with the gas to the floor the
motor revs up but it sounds like it's muffled. I
replaced the fuel pump and filter, fuel regulator,
cleaned out my throutle body. The fuel regulator
helped some but did nothing for take off and hills. I
don't want to keep guessing and it be something
simple. If someone can please help I'd really
appreciate it.

It's a 5.0 302. I took the cats off cause they where red hot and it still didn't do anything.
