Please help me diagnose the problem

38 dual delortos 2110 runs excellent without driving but when you put it under load it falls flat on its face. Electronic fuel pump seems fine with enough fuel. Could it be the distributor is bad under load? how would I test this? I know it could also be the carbs are way out of tune or since/ balanced.

Any thoughts?

Thank you in advanced

this same engine used the same carbs prior to this rebuild, it used to be a 2180 but we lowered it to run cooler and more effiecient. I know the carbs could be bigger but not an option for this year as hopefully this will be my last year of the air cooled VW (2 liter subi going in) I want it to last me the last few trips I will make to Glamis reliably and then it can be retired to a different car than my buggy.

Don't know much about Dell's but if they're anything like Weber's I'd say it might be an idle circuit or an accelerator pump problem.
