Re: Fuel starvation??
Sounds similar to a problem I had.
It turned out to be the brass gauze filter, on the fuel pick up pipe, on the sender unit in the petrol tank - being clogged.
This was discovered AFTER replacing leads, plugs, coil electrics, distributor arm (after stripping the distributor), fuel pump, fuel filter, stripping, cleaning and rebuilding the carbs with all new seals and gaskets (twice!!), checking ALL the fuel lines, getting the car rolling road tuned - and losing most of my hair in the process!!!
Taking the tank off is not difficult - but can be messy if there's alot of fuel left in it.
Hope this helps - good luck
