Engine was missing badly. Took it into shop. The rebuilt carb. replaced sparkplugs and wires, distributor. Still engine is missing bad. They say there is a vacuum leak of some type on the power steering pump? Does that make sense? I was thinking fuel delivery (pump or filter.)

There's a lot of things, or combination of things, that could be causing the problem but you could have valves that are adjusted just a little to tight which can cause a misfire as the engine warms up. Other things that come to mind are vacuum leaks, fuel pressure regulator leak, or an injector problem. Don't have a silver bullet for you but that's where I'd start my search. Hope this helps and good luck!
Hi, Chances are this just a random engine misfire caused by bad spark plugs or bad ignition wires. Basically get a tune up and replace the ignition wires (spark plug wires) and your problem should be solved. Have a good day.
You can find the miss by starting the engine and pulling one plug at a time. when you find the one that doesn't change how the engine runs, there is your problem area. things to do are, first I would switch the wire and see if the miss goes away. If it doesn't then pull the plug and see if it is fouled out. do a compression test on that cylinder. if the compressionis low you can spray some wd40 in the cylinder and retest. if the pressure comes up then the rings are bad, if it doesn't then you have a valve problem.let me know
Hey, i may be able to help you,you should just let me know if you have a auto timing or normal manual timing,
in other words,do your ajust the timing on how fast you are driving or not.
About your wires arcing out of the boot,dialetic grease is a real good thing but as soon as it gets wet it tends to get thin and then leads away your spark.
Clean them off and use it with out the grease and see what happens,
you can also try and spray the plug on that metal hex with a clear coat and also around the plug hole...
