I have a pretty basic '68 Sport Coupe (327, accel dual point, holley 4 barrel, powerglide) that I've recently been experiencing some problems with. It was running fine until the other night. I was driving home from work when it started running rough. It deteriorated pretty quickly until it was undriveable. The engine just surges. It will start up fine, but it won't idle and soon backfires pretty severely. I swapped the carb and the coil, but this had zero effect. A glance under the valve covers revealed nothing amiss, and the points, etc. under the distributor cap look fine. The oil looks fine. Anyone got any suggestions?
