Erik, you will be very happy with the mods you've made to your JH.  I've done similiar a few years ago, and am thrilled each time I drive YELODOG.  My engine looks like yours, but the cam gears are of a slightly different design.  You I got 240 hp, and torque of 185.

My engine bay is at:http://shorpac.com/v-web/gallery/album62/engbay, and if you scroll down, you can see all the changes I've made to the car.  I would suggest that you consider installing a crank-fire ignition.  It eliminates the spark "scatter" associated with a mechanical distributor, and gives reliable spark, especially at the high rpm where you will be getting most hp.

If you are going to race it or do some very spirited driving, I would also suggest an oil system like the Accusump - it will save your main bearings !

Pete
