Rough running?

So the 90 is running rough. It starts and idles, and drives, but it feels like it might be running on 7. There is a shuttering feeling under acceleration and there is a loss of power. I changed plugs, but no help. I was told to replace plug wires and possibly the coil. Does that sound right?

No on the cats. Have not checked codes. But my check engine light has been on for the last 8 years due to speedo being out...

Check all the vacuum ports for leaks. Busted vac hoses will make it run like crap.

They all connect to the air intake plenum box thing that is at the top of the engine.
