Do you have a vacuum leak? How are you setting your timing? Is the distributor a tooth off? What kind of carb.? I know there's so much more, but i don't care to think of right now.

what carb do u have? if its an edlebrock it might be a tiemd vacuum port. use a maifold source. try driving it with yer vacuum advance disabled. be sure and plug it. u may have a blown diaphram in yer stock (and old im assuming) V.A. 10 initial is a good starting point. yer total should be 34+ degrees
