Default Ford Script Distributor Body

I found a Ford script Distributor Body stashed away from the previous owner. Since I thought it was really cool, I replaced my non-script Distributor and fired-up the car. Although is started-up, it acted like it had no power, even when I moved the throttle a bit and advanced the spark. Removed and repaced with the non-script and all was good. For the sake of learning, what would cause this? A possible crack inside the Bakelight that I couldn't see? I did not see any visable cracks or any other indicators. I would have really liked to use the Ford script Distributor Body but I guess it will sit on a shelf as a display piece.
If it aint broke, don't fix it!
