this car was running great until it ate the gear on the distributor. I put in a rebuilt distrib. from Rock Auto with a new TFI installed. Found TDC and timed it at 10 degrees with the spout connector unplugged. Now it idles smoothly and revs freely in neutral but is very sluggish off the line with a bog/flat spot off idle. At highway speeds it seems to surge. CEL is not lit. Does this sound like a timing problem? thanks

Are you sure the SPOUT is plugged back in and making good electrical contact? Can you see timing advanvc with a timing light as you rev it? Have you run codes?
