1973/450sl--baaaad runing--as in bad

I played mechanic and removed the distributor and cleaned the trigger points, I regapped the spark plugs to 1.00mm as listed on this site. The car now runs like it has a mind of its own. The tach needle flys around without relation to speed. The oil pressure never goes past 15 . What did I do ? I guess I will have to take it to a real mechanic.Any and all ideas will be appreciated.Note the idle had to be turned up higher just to keep it running and not cut off. The car stumbles at times and appears she is ready to shut-off. Can anyone help with the vacuum door locking system,as I lock the door (driver's side) trhe other door and the fuel lid will not lock
