Spitting and Sputtering 69 360 Engine

I put a carb kit in my 67 F100 (which has a 69 360 engine). It was leaking etc, but running good until i put the kit in it. I did notice during the "adjustment" of the carburetor (which i have little experience with) that a coil/plug wire was shocking me each time i got close. I put new plug wires on yesterday thinking that would stop the spitting and sputtering. It helped, but did not stop it. I suppose a cracked distributor cap (though it appears to be fine) could be the cause. It idles fine, but spits and sputters when you try to accelerate. Another thought would be possible water in the fuel, but again, it wasn't doing that prior to this point. I cleaned the contact points on the points, but no cigar. Any suggestions much appreciated!!!

Hi!

1. to check for a hairline crack in the dist cap, spray a little WD40 on the inside of the cap...if it runs fine, it is either contamination or a hairline crack.

2. Yes, the plug wires could cause that as well...it is also not unusual to find a bad new wire as well....pull each plug wire as the engine is running to see if it is a specific plug/cylinder or if it varies...this will give some indication of where to look.
