    WADR, a bit more data describing exactly the issue or, better yet a video of the ailment under acceleration. Ignition timing, gear ratios, etc, etc, etc helps a bunch too

    Just shooting off the hip, are you sure your timing is right? Have you tried advancing it a little more to see if theres an improvement?

    Either provide way more information, or it sounds like you should just take it to someone that knows how to tune these older engines. There are dozens of things that could cause a power issue. How much power do think a 265 engine of unknown condition should have?
