On my son's JH, we found that replacing the distributor cap made a world of difference..we watched the engine in the dark and could actually see a spark on the distributor cap..replacing it worked great....also on another car I worked on recently (JH) I never could get the idle set right and it turns out that one cylinder had zilch compression and it turns out it had a burned exhaust valve...remove all plugs..check compression on each cylinder. And your battery was bought in 06?? or is six years old??? Try a new battery...just assuming it works even if it is old is useless...
Let us know
