Like somebody else mentioned, it may be the "bag" filter on the end of your fuel pick-up inside of your tanks that is clogged.

tomorrow I'll pop off the dist cap and find out what it is. but I want to replace it also so i can rule that out and it's time for it anyway.

I popped off the valve covers and it looked like a mud wrestling tournment in there, I will replace the fuel line from the pump and pop in a new filter.

what's a good internal engine cleaner to remove build up? I like slick 50
