In the final stage of 7 mo. rebuild. (73-JH #13218 49,480mile) Was able to put on road this week. it runs good with choke pulled 3/4 out and 20-BTDC @ idle, runs bad.  Backfires. With timing at 0-5 BTDC runs bad no matter choke in or out.  Checking the Vacuum there was no resistance suckin on the hose to Distr. so, pulled didstributor and it leaks air when pos or neg air pressure applied. And of course there is no movement in the advance.

Do I need to replace the complete Distributor or can I get just the Vacuum mechanism?   Any suggestions?
