Re: my 1974 ford pickup/F250 3/4 ton loses power and...
It sounds like the timing is off but moore likely it's caused by the point gap being to close due to wear on the rubbing block.
The gap of the points effects the timing.
You probably need to clean and adjust the points.
If that doesn't work try replacing the points and if the old one are pitted, replace the condenser also.
If that doen't work check the coil.

sounds pretty normal. what speed do you try out the passing gear? anything above 35-45 mph and it will feel like neutral. Passing gear is actually only 1st gear. When you press down the pedal, it forces the transmisson to shift into low gear.
Well this could be in your timing. As cars get some miles on them the timing chain stretches therefore causing you car to lose alot of power.So you may want to have your timing set on this car. Also I had a taurus that had a bad torque converter, and it lost alot of power on hills and under loads, also when i gunned the gas pedal. so try the timing first. Hopefully you dont have a bad head gasket or a cracked head these symptoms you are describing are all signs of head gaskets or blown heads
