    Take it that you're talking about an integral coil HEI distributor?

    Early integral coil type has a vacuum can, later one doesn't but has a second external connector to the EST computer which does advance and retard.

    Have you changed the rotor arm out? they can sometimes track the spark to earth. Otherwise the module on the distributor baseplate may have packed in or the pickup coil has broken down. If you have a multimeter pull the two pickup coil connectors off the boomerang shaped module on the baseplate and check that the pickup coil has continuity; should be 500-1500 ohms resistance across the pickup coil -these coils do fail because of the constant movement of the baseplate with engine vacuum. It's easier to replace the module than to try and test it, they aren't expensive.
