Thanks for the reassurance!

The pickup is great - better than before. It's only in the idle.

I suspect the secondary ignition or the vac.

What a job this was! The right side (passenger side) cooperated fully - the left side (driver's side) I could not pull the pivot pins for the guides, nor could I pull the distributor retainer bold. I will let a shop here handle those (broke a bolt in attemtepting to pull a pivot pin). I suspect the the left side (driver's side) runs hotter on the v8 - there was a significant difference in the valve cover gasket hardenss between the two sides.
