Have you used a timing light to verify that BOTH the vacuum and 
mechanical advances are working? Have you measured the 
charging system regulating voltage? (It should be above 14 V at the 
battery at med rpm with the engine warmed up.)

This is almost correct and normal. The injector wires on one side of 
your engine are swapped. The Grey caps go to the rear. Once you 
get this corrected you should get #1 & 4 to trigger together and if 
you rotate the dist into a different position you will get #3 & 2 to do 
the same.

I doubt if this has caused your symptoms, but I would straighten it 
out first.
