I am basically a parts changer not a mechanic. So since everything was recently changed except the coil and I had a Chinese coil here, I tried it and Wahoo that was the problem all along! I thought those distributors were keyed to only fit one way? Oh well lesson learned, must be very careful!

As the saying goes, " The man who never made a F--K Up " never made anything. I have made plenty along the way and still learning from mistakes.
Good its now sorted.
