Before you invest in a kit, investigate the accelerator pump linkage for clearance as noted above, then pick up a timing light and see if the timing curve is correct. I know you're new to all this, but when the time comes we can all help with the timing investigation. Again, you have scored big, both with the car, and with finding the best car community on the net.

Can I find a timing light at auto zone? Or O'Reillys? It seems like there soooo many different things that could be causing this.
