" when it is hot, i mean warmed up, only.....pushing fwd on the throttle, at 1200rpm it wants to sputter a bit. it picks back up and otherwise purrs like a kitten. nothing happens coming DOWN thru the 1200rpm mark. it idles perfectly at 850rpm. no trouble starting. i replaced the coil, rotor, dist. cap, and electronic module under the rotor and still have a problem. any help would be greatly appreciated.

TRY A NEW ACCELRATOR PUMP AND MAYBE A POWER VALVE.IT SOUNDS LIKE CARBORATION TO ME.

I would look at the carburetor.
Also put a vacuum gauge on the intake manifold and see what it does when it breaks up.

Good luck.
