Running Rough

My 88.5 Samurai is running rough (vey rough) from idle until the metal is flat on the floor. When you push the pedal all the way down it will bog down the engine, then it will smooth out. What is wrong? Help!

Re: Running Rough

A.-out of time(check distributor mounting)
B.-Hole in distributor vac advance(apply vac and see if it bleeds down)
C.-vac leak(check hoses)
D.-primary jet is clogged(pull off bowl cover, primary well tube, and blow through well tube hole(use piece of vac line and watch eyes))
E.-be more specific and include more details(mechanics NEED details(accelerating, standing still, have you checked anything, etc.))

The world looks different when your rubber side up!

Re: Running Rough

I put in a can of B-12 Fuel system cleaner and it is running fine now. The engine was not runniing good at all. It felt like it was loading up when the throttle was at mid range. It would smooth out when it was at full throttle. It idles rough but is worse in mid range when the engine is under a load. I checked the vacum advance line and it is ok. The timing is fine. I did not check the primary jet. The fuel filter is clear (replaced it anyway). This happens once in a while with my Zuk. I have always waited a few minutes and it corrects itself. This time it was worse. It got worse and did not look like it would clear up. I put in the cleaner in desperation and it cleared up after a short time. I would like some ideas on preventing this from happening again.
