I had same problem, my electric fuel pump wasn't keeping up with the hard aacceleration.Idle was fine. My fuel pressure gauge dropped from the usual 5 lbs to 3.5. Replaced pump and filter, no issues. Install a fuel pressure gauge, I bet your filter is causing restriction. Remove and place a new filter between pump and carb. I bet your problem will be resolved. A pressure gauge at the carb will alert you to any issues.
That’s been suggested. I’m going to replace the filter as well as the fuel lines, tank and sending unit. I’m not sure if the lines and tank have been replaced, so I plan to start out clean. I purchased the car a year ago and I have no way of knowing what the previous owner(s) have done. Thank you for the info and suggestion!
