1985 ranger 2.3 5spd has no power after thermostat change

(1990 Ford Ranger)
okay...I just bought this ranger the other day and I drove it for two weeks, and it has been running really cold..and also runs very choppy almost like its out of timing.so I figured I would start with the thermostat, well I changed that and now the engine is at proper temperature, and now the truck is so underpowered that It barely will pull itself and just kinda spitss and sputters...but ive heard that it could be anything from a clogged cat (exhaust is practically rusted out) to bad timing...please help I need this truck!!

Well, you are certainly on the right track. Have your exhaust checked for restrictions. Then checking the timing is the next step.
