I forgot to add that it's a stock points-type distributor with a crane cams electronic conversion. The timing was set by a local speed shop owner because I cannot physically access the timing marker window on the balancer. My alternator is in the way. I'll have to pull the alternator and the bracket and actually possibly the battery box will still be in my way to then try time the engine with a light. We were unable to take it for a test run that night or I would have discovered the issue. In neutral it revs freely to 5500+. In gear, I hit a wall. I know I do need a better distributor, but I was planning to drive it like this for a little while. I know the inability to get a light on it makes it tough. But he had it humming that night so I really thought it was good to go.
