94 Suburban rough tachometer reading

1994 Suburban...lacking power and the tach is showing a bounce like it is missing. Under load it noticeably skips and shudders. I replaced the cap/rotor, fuel filter, air filter, and plugs....still happening. any help would be appreciated.

    I plan on checking the distributor shaft for play tomorrow. I don't know why I didn't think of it when I was changing my cap and rotor.....Probably distracted by all of the fur on the contacts.

Have you checked the Fuel Pump. Sounds like a Faulty Fuel pump.

My guess would be the transmission bands are slipping. This would cause what you describe. First check the transmission fluid and make sure it is full. Check it according to the instructions in your owners manual. If you only had an issue with the tach I would suspect a loose ground wire, but considering the transmission is acting up you more than likely have a transition issue that is just being reflected in the tach.
