1980 CJ7; distributor replaced; cylinder #1 TDC found, timing notch alligned with TDC; assured distributor finger points to sparkplug #1 cable; timing gun advanced to +8 degrees; at 700 RPM notch alligned with TDC; removing the vacuum cable advances the notch by 5 degrees; increasing RPMs advances the notch quite well. All done at normal operating temperature.
But: when I start the car cold, it starts idling at 100 RPMs or less, slowly advances, overshoots, slowly comes back, but driving the first 5-10 minutes, there is hole you fall into when you step on the accelerator with the car stalling.
I just checked timing again: same as above
