yeah, the year is just a bit important.
now, some more questions:
"some things"... what things?
what are you calling "The most obvious" that you need checked first.
Why haven't you checked them yourself? I would first off test out your
plug wires. Are they properly secured <you'd be surprised at how
they'll arc to the chassis if you let them lay near it>. Are they Accel
brand? Rip 'em out and replace with MSD or even a decent parts-store
brand. Sorry, Accel's wires SUCK.
Can't help you on the carby- I' mstrictly an EFI guy, unless it's a 8th
scale race car.....
