    Welcome sboard.

    Most likely the mis is there at all rpm ranges

    Do the basics. Check fuel filter content. Check compression, check spark with a cylinder drop test

        take a plug socket and a grinder, grind the socket to a taper on the drive end to fit your manifolds. there is a special socket that was sold so you dont have to pull the manifolds

        the fact that you can bring the RPM up then nail it says your idle circuit and accelerator pump circuit are probably plugged

          Have ya done any sorta tune up,..??
          If not the plugs, how 'bout the points,..?? Distributor cap look Ok,..??

          I think Scott is probably right, sounds like it might be a fuel issue,...
