Why would a 1983 Mercury Zephyr idle normally in park but sputter when you put it in gear?

Sounds like the timing could be a little out of whack, when in park there is no load and the base idle is good, but when under load there is a vacuum advance issue and the timing is just out enough to cause the sputtering. Check the cap and rotor for any signs of cross firing or arcing inside the cap, hooped rotors will also show this arcing as witness marks on the rotor.

Considering that grams are a unit of mass, their mass would still be 100g. If you used a unit of weight, such as pounds, the relative weight of an object would change from planet to planet. On Mercury, a person who weighed 100 lbs normally would instead weigh 38 lbs.

The vacuum system on a vehicle serves many purposes. A cracked air hose could most definitely cause an engine sputter.
