Have you done a back pressure test on it? If you have no idea what I'm talking about, unbolt exhaust at heads or before the catalitic converter/converters. Try starting then driving it then. If that solves your problem, your catalitic converter/converters are clogged.

Remove the distributor and check the gear at the bottom for missing teeth. Check for excessive play in the distributor shaft. If it checks out, Re-install the distributor and place a socket at the crank bolt. With the dist. cap off, rotate the engine backwards. While watching the rotor, see how far you have to rotate the engine before the rotor moves. If it seems like a long way, replace you timing set. You may have a severely stretched timing chain.
