Of course you have to be sure that everything else is working right.  
Timing, dwell, valve lash.   Make sure the charging voltage is up to 
14.1-14.4V. To use the 72 parts you probably need to consider using a 
complete 72 system.  there are other things that are different: FI 
wiring harness, throttle valve switch, distributor, vacuum advance, 
ignition timing....  Like the man said, everything is connected to 
everything else.
