Your Dodge has a 360 not 350

There are about 30 common causes for the failure you describe.

Rotor, cap, wires, plugs, Vacume Leak, dirty carb,

Caution, a Vacume leak can cause serious engine damage.

The Vacume leak could be all sorts of thngs including the tiny Vacume advance line to the distributer.

Chrysler product of this era had a little kink in that the cross over would plug with carbon, so the bottom of the intake would not warm correctly. This requires removal of the intake, cleaning of the passages in both heads and the intake, freeing up or replacement of the heat riser at the bottom of the passenger side exaust manifold.

If its a dirty carb a jug of carb cleaner and 300 miles over a day or two will probably fix it.

Good Luck
