Thanks for all the input. Both cams were properly timed. The problem turned out to be something Mike Tangas suggested as a possibility -- a fried distributor due to my intial attempts to run the car with the distributor incorrectly timed. Once I ground off the burn marks created by the arching, it ran perfectly.
