Default Hesitation in high gears

Hey everybody I'm new to the forum so I hope I'm writing in the right spot.
I need help with my 1983 4x4 D21. It starts great, idles great at around 900 RPM'S, accelerates fine in 1st and 2nd gear. When i get up in
3rd, 4th, and 5th When i give it gas it hesitates and wants to die. Does anyone have any ideas of what this could be?

Yeah, timing is my first thought as well. Fuel supply is a close second.

Ok, the tick marks to adjust the timing are really really faint. Its possible I don't have it dialed in. I'll get back into it. Thanks

Clean them well, then add white in the grooves. Chalk, for temporary, or white paint (apply, wipe off excess) for long term.

When was the fuel filter changed?


If you leave the gas cap loose when this happens (temporary just for diagnosis), does the issue continue?
