Grant - The issue you have is that you have the relative low compression  
and mild cam timing of the 95HP motor. No matter what timing you use, it will 
 never be a high RPM motor. But, hey, you run regular gas! - Seth

Hi  Grant,

I've run a couple different distributors in engines over the  years and 
found that for overall use on a relatively stock engine the  specified 
distributor does work best.  I'm sure there are some  exceptions, but at this point 
I would to start with the correct one and go  from there.

has a 1964 95 HP motor, but with the 110 HP distributor that was in its  
original 1965 110. Was this an acceptable parts swap? It redlines okay, but  
falls on its face on the road at higher rpms.
