When you say that the distributor does not move anymore, what do you mean, does it hit the end of the stop in the slotted hole where it bolts to the case?
If so, then you need to remove the ditributor and reindex it one tooth on the gear so that you can get more range of adjustment. Basically take the distributor out of the case and turn it slightly and stick it back down in so that it engages a different tooth on the timing gear. This will rotate the shaft and rotor so that you have more movement before hitting the end of the slot in the base of the distributor when you set timing.
