Replaced the distributor, new points, new rotor button, waiting for a shipment containing condenser and caps, should be here tomorrow....
Drove, and drove it hard, ran awesome! Up hills, hit 60+ mph...
Was running about 45 up a pretty steep hill and POP! NO MORE JUICE!
The distributor popped up, and apperently messed up the cap...had to drag it home...

u mean the entire distributor popped up? if so be sure to check the distributor drive gear. if the drive gear popped up as well, it could have damaged the teeth on the drive gear, or the teeth on the gear of the crank

Drive it about 30 miles yesterday, ran like a champ!
Bring it home turn it off and nothing...acted like it was flooded. Waited about 30 minutes and started right up.

Not sure if the choke is stuck or what, I unplugged it and I will try it again tonight. I had fuel and definatly had spark at the points so I know my coil is good....

93 miles logged today, at some point the battery decided it either didn't want to take a charge or generator decided it didn't want to give a charge. But it ran great!
