Which fuel pump (brand) are you running? Picture? Have you checked your dwell to see if your points are closing up? What brand condenser and points are you using?

Off the top of my head, it sounds like a condenser acting up or a fuel pump on it's way out. Is your fuel tank clean? How bad was the fuel filter? Have you ever cleaned the screen inside the fuel tank that's on the outlet where you fit your fuel line to it?

I haven't checked my dwell, I set the points on my 009 in June of last year. I will be installing the dizzy you sold to me this weekend.

The tank should be clean unless the POR15 is peeling. I did not replace the screen in the tank due to running a fuel filter. I suppose something could be blocking the hole. When I changed the filter the fuel flowed out quite well, I drained the tank. The filter wasn't too dirty for how much fuel has been through it.

It's a pain in the rear to remove that screen from the tank w/out dumping gas all over. Since you noted it ran better after changing the filter, I'd be suspicious of possible clogging on that screen. Some folks have luck with the Por15 while others have it peel off and clog up everything.

You can buy a fuel pressure gauge for $20 bucks. It might not be a bad idea to see what kind of pressure that pump is putting out. I had a fuel pump start to go bad on me in a bug. It started to fall all over itself and I couldn't get to freeway speeds. Luckily I was able to turn around and get home. The pump was bad. After changing it, the problem was solved.

You should swap the distributor out. I can't recall if the one i sold you had new points and condenser or not? If it does, it's a quick change.

It does, although the last time I tired to install it I didn't have much luck. I will try again. Also there is no screen and since I drained the tank there shouldent be any more blockage. I am thinking its maybe the pump... speaking of that what would be a good replacement? I don't see to many these days.

I replaced the condenser and points on the 009 distributor and it runs great!
