Default 1990 Camry

Hello all. I have a 1990 Camry, 3S-FE 2.0L engine, about 165K miles.
Starts well and runs well with one exception. Upon acceleration from a
stop, it stumbles. If I hold gas pedal in one postion, it will eventually
come up to speed. If I am already going highway speed and I try to
accelerate, I really have to push it a long way to feel a difference.
However, if I punch it to the floor, it will really accelerate, though I
know I have kicked it down gearwise.
Yesterday I replaced the plugs, air filter, and fuel filter.
After I read some notes in the newsgroups, I am considering replacing the O2
sensor, the throttle position sensor, and the dist. cap/wires. Can I clean
any of these parts and reuse them? (I'm trying to avoid spending big
bucks.) Or would anyone out there suggest which part to try first.

I really enjoy this car and I want to get the performance back to where it
can be.

Thanks for help in advance, I appreciate it.

Gary in NC.
