Never assume the firing order is OK because it idles. I tried that and pulled my hair out for a while. Are you getting any backfiring?

Dwell should be 26-31 and I have .017 for the gap.

After thinking about this for a while, I suspect you aren't getting any advance out of your distributor. Hood up your timing light and bring up the speed and see what happens.

How are you supplying water to your engine for driveway running? You want to be sure not to starve your engine of water. It sucks down a lot once above idle speed much.
