I don't have info that far back. If the car starts to run good after take off, the plugs wires are correct. Check to make sure the carb (accellerator pump) is working. If it isn't, that would cause the accelleration problem.

Jacob is right. With the engine off, move the throttle linkage as if accelerating the engine. Look down the carburetor throat. You should see a spray of fuel.
