CA running problem

Well I can't seem to figure it out. New plug wires, plugs, cap, points, condenser and I brought down one of my rotors. I tried timing it and retiming it, cleaned the carb up and put it back together. Reset it to factory setting (1.5 turns out) and put it back together, and nothing I did made it run better than before. Anybody have any ideas?

At the start of the video it is timed per the allis service manual. I adjusted it during the video to fine tune it and it ran a lot better, but the going from running smooth to rough and backfiring has me puzzled.

you may wish to try another coil -
you may wish to try another fuel supply, like a 1/2 or gallon tank with fresh fuel plumbed direct, just to eliminate fuel quality/supply
has the bushings in the distibutor been check for excessive wear - if the shaft wanders dwell will be erratic
hopefully the dist is just gummed up and can be made useful with some cleaning and lubing
working on something away from home always adds to the hassle - but looks like you may be heading in the good direction
