ok,Ijust changed my spark plugs and wires on my 84.Heres my problem,idle's good but in gera and driving it starts to run rough,almost like a clogged fuel filter.It ran fine before i changed plugs and wires.so it tells me i have a bad plug or wire somewhere.My question is whats the easiest way to pinpoint which wire or plug it is without redoing the whole thing or is there a way?:W

Are you sure you didn't get a couple plug wires crossed? 5 and 7 maybe? They are next to each other both in firing order and physicallly. You might not notice at an idle with no load. I see you installed new wires,could be 1 and 2 are crossed. They are next to each other on the distributer and firing order. Those are the first I would check.
