Corroded electrical connectors and fuel leaks from dried out carb gaskets come to mind. The distributor is directly under the carburators and will ignite any fuel leak that drips on it. I cover the base of the distributor cap with a strip of duct tape.

Check the electric fuel pump in the trunk to make sure it is working and check the fuel lines for leaks. If there is a plastic tee in the fuel lines to the carbs, replace it with a metal one. many JH's have been lost to fuel fires. 

There is an absolute wealth of information on this site.
