Re: Q-Jet Problem
Are you sure it's the carb, if you're using a dwell meter, you said it was original, so you should have points in the distributor, if thats the case, forget about the dwell meter and set the points close to right then run it and readjust, use new points.
One more thing, see if you have any pressure at your gas cap after you run it.
You could also have some electrical problems like plug wires or boots, find a dark area, let it idle and look real close for any tiny flashes around the wires and cap, don't reach your hand in there in the dark, kind of a dangerous situation.
I use to have a chevelle in 1970 that would do what you are saying your car does, I put new points set the gap right on the money, checked it with a dwell meter, everything set perfect but didn't have it all at wot. Adjusted the points a couple of times, and that brought her to life.
Just throwing a few things at you.
