Due to something called rotor phasing....

the rotor does not necessarily point directly at the distributor terminal when the spark fires.. some rotors have very wide contact ends...

What you need to do is remove your distributor and turn it one tooth and reinstall it so that your "timing" position will be in the mid range of your available distributor turning arc. That is.. you don't move the cable mount, you change the distributor....... move it so it won't hit the stuff!

You should also verify the TDC timing marks on your dampner and pointer by staticly checking the top dead center with a positive stop tool.
