    Check the sparkplugs for wear and gap, cracks, leakage, etc. Also check the sparkplug wires, they should have about 5kOhms/foot resistance and be in good physical shape, and not arcing to the head through the wires or plug boots.

    Ok I checked all that and replaced its all as well. I have noticed that when its cold it runs just fine but as it heats up it starts to run rough and I think that the fluttering when I give it alot of gas is a different thing all together. I have been looking all around online and another person had the same problem and he said it was a broken bolt in the distributor and that fixed his problem but i have checked mine and there did not seem to be a problem????? any other advise?
