Sorry for the no response but have worked 29 days straight and just have not had time to get to work on the car. I did find TDC and it seems to be right on with the tab. Tried advancing the timing and it will idle fine it seems like until it warms up then it dies and will not stay running. It hesitates bad when you apply any throttle like the distributor is not advancing. I tried a vacuum pump on the advance and it pulls the advance in the distributor. I am wondering if because of the bigger cam and the duration if there is enough spark with the old points. I pulled all the plugs and did a leak down and all the cylinders are at 94 to 96%.
