ENGINE CUT OUT AT FULL THROTTLE

I have a 1981 Westfalia Van. Just replace all vacume hoses and new plugs. Engine runs fine untill you apply full throttle then it cuts out then comes back then cuts out. Its fine at 1/3 throttle but when you step on it it cuts out.

Have you did continuity test on the micro switches on the throttle body?
