A bog in the transition going to wide open throttle (WOT) is usually incorrect setting of the secondary airvalve spring. Set the spring to a windup of 3/4 to 7/8 turn.

Might want to check out the last couple of issues of Hemmings "Muscle Cars". They had two articles on how to rebuild the Rochester 4bbl carburetor. Lots of neat tricks in those two articles.

Guys, thanks for the great advise. Im going to check all of the above. I changed the Octane I was using and that has already helped. The other thing I did is bought an K&N air filter. The car seems asome, once I had done those two things:D Im still looking into the timing and the Secondarly Air valve. Herb
