I don't remeber if you said but if the alternator is internal style it should be replaced wih a new or rebuilt unit(the regulator is bad). Something else that we might be over looking---high coil spark out put is good on a race motor that's jetted properly but a street motor this could cause lean condition which will believe or not will cause a pinging or ignition knock like the timimg is too advanced----rember retarding the timing fattens the motor/advancing leans the motor.Also you said the accelerator pump is squirting good. Try it more than once with the motor not running.It should squirt good several times if the fuel supply is adequate and fat level is correct. Refering to Holley (but true on most all carbs.)a 3occ accelerator pump rating is the amount of fuel produced after"Ten" pumps of the accelerator pedal. Like the others guys said " junk" those plattium plugs---NGK single digit plugs if you can find them are one many good choices in plugs. keep looking!!!
