On the timing issue.. If is the original balancer it could have slipped. It obviously sounds like you have other issues with low vacuum not running right. However, I had a problem with not being able to set the timing with a light. When I tried the mark was about 60 degrees off. I just set it by ear and it ran great. Come to find out the outside of the balancer had walked. A new balancer was installed and the timing marks are now where they should be.
