Is it JUST going up steep hills? or anytime you are under load? Like, does it also sputter if you floor it in a high gear and low RPM?
If its just hills, then probobly just in the carb, ie bad float, etc.
If anytime under load, then could be a long list. ie ignition system (plugs, caps, wires). The engine needs a strong spark when under load, so you don't always notice you need a tuneup until you start going up a hill.
Or maybe odd things, timing way off, bad vac leak, stuck choke, etc.
