We extend to you a cordial "WELCOME ABOARD !" Come on in, make yourself at home, we are a friendly group of enthusiasts, and we also appreciate the classic Chris Craft Roamer, Corsair, and Lancer boats too , as they are all on the same family tree and share much in common ! Just start by posting a note introducing yourself to the group, that's all it takes here (we don't ask for or retain any personal information here, because our intention is to just "have fun and share information".
sounds like the distributor is off a tooth reset it and you'll be fine, its easy to do or maybe your timing marks are off use the KISS method,
(keep it simple stupid) LOL if the timing chain is off a tooth it wouldn't run good at all, i've been a mechanic for ford for a lot of years, i know engines, now after checking TDC and your distributor and your timing tab might be wrong the only thing left would be they put the wrong distributor in, right hand and left are different but i doubt that
