I agree with K.LaRue. Did you install the distributor with the timing correct? When no. 1 cylinder is at TDC on the compression stroke, the points must be about to open and the rotor pointing to the no. 1 spark plug terminal. Then if the point gap is set correctly a timing light can be used for final timing with the engine running.
