I just got my 67 camaro 350 back from the shop two days ago. They fixed my oil leak and the car ran fine. Bad news though, I took it out for a cruise just now and when I accelerated, the engine ran rough and was chugging. The more I accelerated, the worse it got. There was also a ticking sound I could hear coming from the engine compartment. Could all of this be the result of a vaccuum leak, timing, or spark plugs? (I recently advanced the timing a little bit) Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Samuel

I would check the timing. I have a ford truck that I advanced the timing on and it did EXACTLY the same thing. That is where I would start anyway.
