Hi Gerald:
That's annoying. If it's running OK but just won't get up to your happy speed, it hopefully won't be much more than some letting you know that you care. I'd suggest you start with making sure the air filter is clean. How long since the spark plugs were changed. Same for the oil. Check your timing. Get a can of carb cleaner and spray out the carb with the engine running. If all else fails, Chevy's have been known to be good performers!
