Just bought a "new" truck to haul the racecar. It's a '79 Ford 351. It soulds as if it's "chugging" when it's under a load, and the fuel economy is the pits. Anyone got a good idea where to start? Timing? Carb? Complete tuneup? It's got dual exhaust w/o converters.

Do a complete tune up. Plugs, wire, cap, rotor, adjust the timing, fuel filter. You'll be out $50 or so at most.
