    to ajust the timing just loosen the bolt holding the distributer and turn the distributer

    hook a timing light to the #1 plug wire and point it at the crank shaft where the timing marks are

    LOL don't we all. Setting timeing is a good start,and if it's been sitt'n for awhile do a tune-up(plugs,wires,distributer cap) and spray some carb cleaner down the carb while running,look for the little bleed holes and shoot em.If you don't have timing lite,Check for a local club or someone here to help out. Luck to ya

    Check all of your rubber hoses to the carb, distributor and intake to ensure they haven't rotted through. When was the last tune-up, air and fuel filter maybe clogged, also.
