great input; thank you. I became pretty much convinced of the same so I went ahead and replaced the distributor with a PerTronix Billet distributor with the built in Ignitor III. Set #1 to TDC and dropped it in with very little trouble. Fired right up and I adjusted the timing by ear (I think I got luck and it was pretty damn close to perfect). I didn't have time to drop her in the water this past weekend but I hope to do so next weekend at which time I'll fine-tune the timing at operating temperature.
