Why it has no power under load, sputtering ?

Could be many things that may be causing your sputter during acceleration, have you ever changed the distributor or checked it, I mean removing the cap and checking terminals inside. Make sure all plug wire are snapped on all the way. Perhaps it needs a new fuel filter, start with the cheap stuff plugs, wires but I would look at distributor cap and change fuel filter first, stuff does need to be periodically checked and/or replaced to keep proper performance.

I have a 1971 3502v Buick skylark. The motor starts but when I accelerate it, it will crack and back fire. I checked all the wires and firing order and it's all correct. I also checked the point gap at...

Could be a damaged cap or rotor, or a lean fuel mixture.
You could try running the engine with the choke partially on to rule out the lean fuel mixture theory. It could have a faulty accelerator pump in the carb, or dirt in the carb.
A cracked cap could cause the rotor to fire the wrong plugs under load.

Random misfire

If you replaced the plugs and wires you should know the engine has a distributor cap. The coil is in the bottom of the distributor.
Keep in mind it could be an injector instead of an ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on and have you checked for trouble codes ?

Hi. Changing the coil first was a good move. Since it did not solve this illusive problem now change the plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor and I believe your problem will be solved. Joe

Why does a spark plug fire at idle but not on acceleration ?

You may need to check the ignition wires and the distributor cap/rotor.
Older ignition wires will "break down" and the spark will actually short out on nearby metal/engine block etc.
Try this test. With the car running, parking brake set, and foot firmly holding the brakes, put the car in Drive and accelerate. If the engine misses under a load, it's most likely the ignition wires..

94 royal begis to cut out, chugs at about 55

Replace the spark plugs and wires along with a distributor cap and rotor. Be careful to leave the old wires and plug wires connected to dist.cap, just remove dist. cap from the distributor and lay aside with plug wires on it then install rotor then new cap and proceed to replace each wire for cap and spark plug one at a time so you don't mix up the spark plug wire firing order. Cap laying to the side is used for reference purpose.

1999 nissan frontier is idling rough the truck shakes but shaking stops when the air is turned on. changed oil, spark plugs, spark plug wires and distributor cap.

This can be your Idle control valve, when you turn the air on it puts the engine under load and your computer will increase the idle automatically to prevent the engine from cutting out.
When you are standing still and the car is shaking, by touching the accelerator very softly does the shaking stop? If so check the idle control valve.
I hope this will help.
