Jim, You have a decent selection of parts. As I said earlier (at least I think it was your car), the cam is not what I'd pick but it still should work OK. The MSD distributors come with insanely strong springs that do not allow the mechanical advance to come in when it should. Did you change the springs to the lighter ones supplied? With your gear I'd try to have everything in by about 2600 RPM. Have you checked the advance with a timing light? Did you get a chance to try flashing the convertor? What is the LIST number on the 750 and what is the calibration (jets, PVs, pump nozzles, pump cams)? What is the ET and MPH again? Chuck
