What ever you do, get it running in OEM condition first before you go scabbing after market parts on it. Otherwise you will not know if there is an underlying mechanical problem or just a mis-match of specs causing poor performance.
My problem is it was converted to fuel injection just found out while looking around I thought the carb was gone but I saw a fuel rail and I new!
So I have a bigger problem but I can do it I have to time for sure just need to buy it I'm going tonight to go negotiate
