Okay, so ignition is good, including the mechanical advance mech? Also all 
the usual tuneup things: dwell, timing, valve adjustment.

Put a clean hose on the pressure sensor and suck on it. It should hold 
vacuum. If it does not then there is a leak there which MAY be fixable, or you 
may need a "new" pressure sensor.

Have you checked the fuel pressure? 28-30psi.

Have you checked the charging system regulating voltage? Should be 14.1-
14.4V measured at the battery at medium RPM after a drive to get everything 
warmed up. If it is below 13.5V, replace the voltage regulator. This is a 
common problem which makes the EFI run rich.
