It's possible that the distributor and/or the drive gear for the distributor
havent been put in right.  It's not like the installation for a Bug.  The
Bentley has shows how the drive gear is supposed to fit.  If this has
happened, you might not have really set the engine to #1 firing position
(depending on the method you used to set the engine).  Set the engine using
a wooden dowel in the #1 spark plug hole, as described in Muir.

If the drive gear turns out to be put in wrong, this is the first thing to
correct.
