Thanks Keith for your input. I am not at all convinced I have all the vacuum leaks identified and fixed. I reused my existing base flanges gaskets with sealant added but ordered a new set of gaskets. I need a new phenolic spacer but have been unable to find one yet on line. I am also concerned that it may be the intake manifold to block leaking. Meanwhile, the starter began to fail so I have to replace it. My plan now is to ship the dis back to Philbin and ask Mark to check it for stability because the timing does move around a bit and I should have realized that would cause the hunting. I need to do that to scratch it off my list if nothing else. I have also ordered a new set of ignition cables, and I do not think its those either.
If I have to take the intake manifold off, this is probably the time to replace the camshaft with the stock camshaft (-although as I write that I ask myself “What does that disassembly have to do with replacing the camshaft?”-probably very little as the tasks are pretty much unrelated I think).
Best, Mike Moore

I suppose it could always turn out to be a distributor issue, but I'm putting my money on your finding yet one more vacuum leak you haven't plugged. Your symptoms sure sound similar to the challenging ones I had on a Quadrajet GM car until our carb guru Jim McGowan at the Quad Shop found vac leaks in my carburetor. Are you pretty sure everything is tight now in the intake area?
