Won't go past 4K in 5th

Whilst trying to get rid of intermittant missing I've replaced everything except the trigger points. I even traced the wires from the ECU to each component and found them to have continuity. My injector boots were reversed and I corrected that.
Cleaned all injectors including the csv. Then re-timed.
I timed to 27 BTDC and it ran rough. I found another red mark 1 fin to the left of 27 BTDC mark and timed to it. Very smooth running, so I left it. Drove it and the miss was gone and I could pull rpms up to 5K with ease. Very good pulling power. The only thing is it won't go beyond 4K in 5th... that's it. It used to go beyond.
Can this be the timing limiting this Calif. 1.7 or is it pooped?
