Sounds like a 1975 or earlier car! & that is a factory set-up as far as the fuel system goes!! HAVE seen & worked on several of that exact set-up! The fuel pressure is supposed to be at 2 BAR(30psi), & the system has a MAP sensor that does 75% of fuel adjustments. The 1976 & later cars had CIS fuel systems. The MAP sensor is the key to this engine running correctly. Follow large Vacuum from the rear of the engine to the MAP sensor around the brake booster area. THE 1971 to 1976 V-8's used a very simular system, specs would be very close.
