No. If you knocked pieces of the chain or sprockets off, you'd not run at all. Check your timing and your idle mix. Also, check to see if your crankcase vent valve is moving freely. Replace if in doubt. Sounds like you may be running rich. Check carb for proper idle mix after you set float levels. Is the carb new, rebuilt or some old hunk? Are the gaskets new or reused? Is the spacer plate the right one for the car and installed correctly?
Also...was the timing chain new and the cam properly indexed? You may have to take the front of the engine apart to find out.

it has plug wires crossed the firing orders is 18436572 make sure distributor is pointing toward # 1 plug wire make sure #1 cylinder is up on compression take plug out put finger over plug hole let some one crank it over until compression comes up then line your rotor button is pointing toward #1 wire on cap. then start ur #1 plug wire where the rotor button is pointing and go clock wise 18436572 and that should take care of it

Sounds like the injectors may be bad or just really dirty. You say that the truck is only used as a plow truck, so I would assume that it sits alot. If you dont add any fuel stabilizer to the tank, the fuel will start to degrade and the will gum up your injectors. One thing you can do is to pull the air cleaner assembly off and look at the injectors while the truck is running. Look at the bottom of the injectors while it is running. The injectors shouldbe spraying fuel with a fan spray of fine mist. If you see any drips of fuel in the this fine mist, that injector is at least dirty or on its way out. I would recommend that you change your fuel filter and then get some fresh fuel and the purchase some Seafoam fuel injector cleaner from your local parts store. Dont mess around with anything else. GET SEAFOAM. If it is in a plastic bottle it is not strong enough to do anything. Seafoam is in a metal can. Dump the seafoam in and run the truck as much as you can. This will help clean out the injectors.
