Any part store should have one, it's a tune up analyzing gauge, tests RPM, Dwell angle and volt amps. Directions will be included with the meter. Remove the distributor cap, see if the shaft can be wiggled side to side, it should not, and if it does there is a worn shaft. Also with cap removed turn engine by hand until the rotor moves, then go the other way, see how much slack is there, A timing chain streching can cause problems too. A stuck EGR, Closed choke, blocked exhaust, weak coil, all can cause your symtoms.
