Well fool infected... pump, filters, throttle position sensor, knock sensor

Carbed... cloged jets, float out of spec, pump, filter

Either... rust clogging fuel lines/filter sock in the gas tank, ignition coil/ignitor

Just off the top of my head

check the timing and the rotor, go form there. it may be the ign control module if the rpms max out at any load if FI or the pickup in the didty for carb.
