Where is the air fuel mix regulator?
Did you change the plug wires too?
If a cylinder isn't firing, it could be sending the unburned gas out the exhaust causing a "rich" condition, that is compensated for by leaning the mixture out, which causes a near stall, which surges the engine as the gas mix is increased.
Your misfire still on #2 and #3?
