a very common problem for this is an airleak...check all your manifolds, the boots, etc etc aren't leaking...

someone had a very similar prob a while ago, and it ended up being the engine firing order wasn't proper...CHECK THAT, its so simple but happens all the time

also assuming, that you have sorta gotten timing in a good area, done a carb adjustment? i guess its tuff with it not running that good, but are you sure its not running too rich, too lean?? Try leaning it out a tad. -JustinD
