Check for vacuum leaks around the intake. Make sure fuel pressure is within spec and the regulator is working properly. A common problem was the intake gasket. So check that closely. Expecially around the rear of it.

Did you mean the intake gasket wher it bolts to the block or where the carb bolts to the intake? And what would the fuel pressure spec be for that? Thnx again!
