Change the fuel filter.
Does it 'flood' out or run out of fuel in 4th?

He said he had it rebuilt. But if you have to baby it to get it up to speed its probably running way to rich. I would pull the carb and rebuild again.

HAve you checked the timing and the advance mechanisms? Is the engine well grounded? It may be an ignition related issue, remote but possible.
