Welcome to the site, You need to post this in the engine section, You will get better responses there then in the interior section.
Have you checked to make sure it's not cross wired? and you could have a vacuum leak also. JMO

How high of an rpm are you talking about? That's a small cam and carb. in an engine not made for high rpm's.

You're sure it's a carb-sputter, and not an ignition miss?

What the fuel pressure at the carb? How do the plugs look?

My car was sputtering whenever i jumped on it and i put an inline fuel pressure gauge. 3.5-4.5psi! I put a carter pump and holley regulator wala 5.5psi! All fixed

Also whats the timing at. Initial and mechanical. Is the vacuum advance ported or full manifold?
