    Usually thats due to worn plugs and wires.

    Agreed. Time to replace those spark plugs.

    Any mods?

    But yes, wires & plugs, usually.

    When either of our '90 SC's start acting up like that the first thing we do is swap out the plugs and wires. Fortunately we have access to a lift. Up and down like a yo-yo on the lift doing one plug and one wire at a time - except the two up front.

    We've been using Taylor wires for a good while with great success.

    I don't think thats going to help your bucking issue.. Check in parts for sale. Also, there was a member, Paul Protos, who refurbished the older units many years back. I don't have his contact info, but do a search and see if you can locate and contact him.
