Brief history: Very rough running, 3 and 5 not firing. Replaced Pertronics with points due to two magnets coming out of reluctor. Ran great, test drove, everything fine.
Present: This morning son cranked her up and running rough again. Checked points, all my connections, changed fuel filter etc. It will straighten up and purr like a kitten for a minute or so then start missing. Then straighten up again. Need some idea's. Autolite 1100, Load-a-Matic distributor, carb freshly rebuilt, new plugs, plenty of fuel and pressure.

Leaning in that direction, and DSII conversion is on my todo list. It seems tight with no play. If I don't get any more suggestions, I'll pull it and check the gear. Never had one that was intermittent like this. Usually a higher rpm miss with it.

Fixed! When the magnets came out of the reluctor wheel there were four missing. Since I found two and two cyl weren't firing, figured I dropped the other two on the ground because it sure wouldn't run on two cyl. Pulled dizzy and found them, jamming the vacuum advance to the Load-A-Matic. I will upgrade dizzy, but it's running for now. Promised young son he could drive to school the last day(tomorrow).
