FISHBITE MISSING

1964 Mercury Comet

Engine Performance problem
1964 Mercury Comet 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 80000 miles

I have a comet that fishbite misses when the engine is slack. Not as noticeable on acceleration or deceleration, but at 55 when you slack off it will jerk you to death. I have replaced:
points
plugs
condenser
wires
distributor cap
rotor button
coil
rebuilt carburator
fuel filter
pcv valve

Fishbite misses? Never heard of that lol. I'd try a compression test and see if the timing chain may be going bad or jumped a tooth. This is something someone needs to drive to actually try to diagnose this correctly.
