Make sure all the steel and rubber lines are in good shape as well. I had to replace a steel line on the 85 because it had rusted so bad there were little pin holes and it was sucking air into the fuel lines. I replaced EVERYTHING from the tank to the carb. That solved the fuel starvation problem I was experiencing.

I also got rid of the spark control computer and swapped in a conventional Mopar electronic ignition.

I have a Pertronix ignition system installed on my van. I have had it for 10 or so trouble free years.
