You should check the crankshaft damper for evident movement of the damper’s outside part from the inside part. The rubber in the middle may have slipped. This would cause the distributor timing to be set incorrectly. You can recheck the timing again to see if timing is not set correctly and needs to be adjusted again. Try advancing timing and see if problem goes away. If it does, then replace the damper and reset the timing to specifications. A certified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, can come to your location to diagnose your loss of power firsthand if you end up needing assistance with this. Good luck.
