Oldsmobile 98 1964

Hi, I have a Oldsmobile 98 1964, 394, Carb is a Rochester 4 Jet

The problem is that the engine begins to hack uphill, but if I'm on gas, it works until the next uphill. It seems that it not get fuel.

Best regards


Sorry for my bad English.

It could be a carb problem in that the float levels are set too low?  It could be also be a distributor vacuum advance problem in that the rubber diaphragm inside the advance mechanism has deteriorated to the point it does not advance the timing when under load?


Just taking "stabs in the dark" here.
