First thing I'd check is the ignition timing. Easy to get the dizzy a tooth off, or 180° out if you set it up at top dead exhaust instead of top dead compression. Easy check if you've got a timing light. Check your firing order, too. And be glad it doesn't have an oil pump drive that you have to position so the distributor shaft will engage it. Had all kinds of fun with that on my friend's Chevy 4.3l.
