A Prestolite ignition without a vacuum advance is like towing a parachute behind your Wagoneer. When I replaced the Prestolite with an HEI on my 76 360, the vapor lock, stalling, and hard starting disappeared. I was always blaming my carb, fuel pump, fuel filter, gas tank, and gas lines. Still get only 10 MPG, but it was worth it.
