85 CJ7 Idles ok but accelerates rough

I installed a hei dist. and had to replace the pick up coil in it. It was running great before, now it accelerates lousy and misfires. I have tried every possible timing position even moved the dist forward a gear tooth and backward. Any ideas? It idles ok, like it did before.
