Exclamation 87 Nisan Z24 crazy engine

What would cause a 87 Nissan Z24 engine to jerk everywhere when started? I have tried everything but can't figure it out. Any info would help! Thanks!

First thing that comes to mind is ignition crossfire due to a bad distributor rotor (they tended to burn through and allow crossfire between the intake and exhaust ignitions). Improperly installed ignition wires, blown head gasket, bad starter/corroded battery cables/weak battery, broken motor mount are a couple of other things.
