    Micah- spot on! Sucking through the hoses produced a result not unlike sipping a straw in an empty glass. So, guess it's on to finding the vac advance module somewhere. Thank you everyone! Sorry I didn't get to reply to everyone but it has all been real helpful.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, it has been a while since I had the six banger: Top is retard, bottom (diaphragm) is advance.

    GOOD DEAL, hope that solves it.

    Just get a rebuilt distributor. By now, that thing is worn out and the shaft is wobbling and effecting your timing/dwell. Should not be expensive.

    Personally speaking, I'd just as soon buy a cheap rebuilt stock distributor from a local parts store than bolt one of those offshore pieces of crap on anything I owned. And at least you have a local warranty if something goes wrong too.

    New distributor is a success. Now, it might also interest someone to see the other culprit of the rattling engine bay. A busted exhaust pipe gasket! Ordered today, and I imagine everything's good as new after that. Nothing else could possibly go wrong in a car that's almost half a century old. ;)

    aluminum, copper, or better yet.. remflex gaskets are worth their weight in gold(they're pretty light so I can honestly say that). (y)
