Mike,  Could be a bad condenser in you distributor if you still have the
conventional point and condenser ignition setup.  I had the same problem once.
I had just shut the engine off after coming home and a while later started the
engine and it wouldn't go above idle without stumbling and backfiring.  Worth
a try.

A little snapping once in awhile. Then I put the car away Sunday night, go
uesday afternoon to go get a six pack. (Of Coke, of course.)Hit the button
nd, as ever, it fires right up and idles pretty fine. A little flat spot here
nd there at idle. Oil pressure is great, so I rev it up a bit-we're still in
he open-doored garage-and it backfires "POW!" I back off for a couple of
econds and give it a little kick and "POP, pop Poppity pop POW snap, snap,
OW!. I drop it back to idle and still quite smooth, save for a tiny hiccup
very few seconds. I figure lets get it out of the yard and onto the
esidential street in front of my house. I could barely make it up the little
ill that's part of this little circuit.   Any ideas?    Mike Gougeon
