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
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

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.
