Should have drained the tank. Not only was it old gas but it may have had some condensation in it.

68 chevelle tune up how do I do it

What engine do you have in the car?
Your tune up will consist of distributor cap , rotor, points, spark plugs, and really should put a set of plug wires, air filter, fuel filter . Trying to explain how to put the points in and adjust would be the big problem here, and the spark plugs need to have a certain gap.
The rest is pretty easy. You just have to make sure that you don't get your plug wires mixed up and on the wrong plugs. If you have to put some tape on the wires and write numbers like 1,2,3,4 so you get them back where they were. The distributor cap will only go on one way and fit right.
I would also check for any vacuum hoses that might be bad and leaking, and possibility of carburetor needing rebuilt.
If you need anymore assistance feel free to ask and I will try to help.
