I would check the timing could have jumped a tooth on the timing belt/chain. Also check the rotor in the distributer make sure that it is not worn out. I have also seen a plugged catletic converter cause big time power loss and really strange problems
It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best. Greg
he diff between a lockup vs non-lockup torque converter is the lockup
simply locks the torque converter to the transmission direct
electrically so there is no slippage in high gear. And there is no
advantage to using a 2300 rpm stall converter if you are running a
basically stock cam. However if you insist on this high stall speed
torque converter you'll be able to lay down some impressive black marks
froma standing start! One final note...unless you change your rear end
gears your RPM's at a given speed remain the same. All the 2300 rpm
does is your motor will rev a bit more before you start moving
