OK, I understand.
Try connecting the 3-wire female pigtail coming from the distributor to the male connectors under the coil cover instead of running the ground separately. Be sure there are all three male connectors, and that they're also connected to the BATT and TACH positions of the coil cover.
If you have a tach attached to the TACH terminal, try removing the tach.
