Default 302 bad throttle response

I have a late 70's 302 in my Ranger. Lately it has been having bad throttle response off the line. 2,000-6,000 rpm it runs perfect but down low 1,000-2,000 rpm it cuts out for a second then goes. Engine has always ran perfect. Recently replaced the points because the old ones were shot.

Any ideas on what to check next? Could my carb need rejetting due to the colder weather?

There are many things that could cause this but, Did you accidently bump the timing back when you replaced the points or was the replacement because of the condition? And why are you running points when the duraspark is such an easy swap?

If you have a timing light double check the timing, If not bump the timing ahead a few degrees and road test.
