Hi Bill,
Did you not get my last email?  I got no acknowledgment until I read 
this post on Rovernet.  A new distributor should have vacuum advance for 
good fuel economy.  I will be interested in what others have to say 
about the Kent 218 cam and Rhodes lifters...  Buick and Rover lifters 
are identical but some are better (more expensive) for more radical 
cams.  Crane lifters will go about 1000 rpm higher before pump up than 
stock Rover or Buick lifters.
