Did you check the float? They get bounced around in shipping quite a bit and can get damaged. Truthfully, I've only installed two, but both were off.

Forgot to say already have new plugs, wires, cap and rotor, and fuel filters. The tach jumps up and down at idle also.
In that case,remove the cap and see how much sideplay the distributor shaft has.
Should be very little.

Anything more than barely perceptible is too much.
The reluctor air gap is only .020" maximum.
The jumping tach is a dead give away that you need new distributor bushings or a new disty.
