YOu need to first check that the points are adjusted properly. I assume you have points because I can't see how a Crane optical or pertronix would install in a Marelli dist.

Have you checked the advance with a timing light? Have you phyiscally turned the rotor by hand to see if the mechanical advance is working? This may require dist. removal, cleaning and overhaul.

Just be aware that the high energy ignitions like Crane and MSD will cause your cap and rotor to wear much faster. I know these are next to impossible to find for your dist. You may want to start looking for a replacement distributor while your car is still running.
