Might check out your timing to see if you need to advance it some.. is it dying rough or seem to just idle down and shut off? I don't remember if those years had the vacuum advance with weights and all that. A new distrubuter from jegs or summit is like $200, prob livin it up a bit. I dn't remember the year of my brothers but below it should be attached. :o)

if you have a tac odometer adjust the idle up to 900 rpm.
