One oft overlooked part is the throttle body. A rebuild kit is less that thirty bucks and is very simple. A vacuum leak in the throttle body kills power and responsiveness. Despite being ae to last much longer that the typical carb due to both form and overall function, gaskets do not last forever. Do yourself a favor and rebuild it.
