You should have told us it had an EI installed from the start. Could be the source of your problems. I would yank it out, tune up the distributor with new points and condenser and new plugs but don't toss old ones -they may only be fouled now with all the cranking, and go back to the basics. Check electrical wiring -make sure you have the ballast resistor in place and wired correctly. If you do this and it starts and runs fine, you have something in the EI wiring as your root cause. Oh yeah, get the battery checked by a professional and replaced if bad; why wait for the postman? FYI a hydrometer can be purchased at any auto parts store and possibly your local starter/alternator guy too.
