Good point!

I run a FI distributor in it, and I haven't changed the timing or mixture
since it was last running fine.

I just drove it again, because I had to take back the filler that I bought-
it was useless! Anyway, I went up a hill at about 65MPH, full throttle, and
halfway up, it started running funny again, like it was only running on two
cylinders. At the top it smoothed out as I let the throttle go, then I
pushed it down to the floor again and it started doing it again. I did that
a couple of times, and if I pushed it down more that 3/4 it would do it, and
when I let it back up it would run fine, until I got further down the other
side of the hill then it wouldn't do it again all the way home.

Does that sound like fuel starvation to you?
