hey everyone im new to this for so forgive me if i put this in the wrong section. i own a 91 notchback that i bought a few months ago. the timing was way to advanced so i ajusted it. well the stock distributor went out on my a few days ago so i put in a msd one in. i cant adjust it to 10 degrees before BTC with out it stalling. the only way the car runs is if its a 20-30 degrees BTC. i got the #1 spark plug on the compression stroke the timing marks on the balancer at 0 degrees before BTC, rotor facing the #1 stark plug wire. i try to set the timing to 10 but it will just stall this also happened with the old distributor. my question is what could cause this or did anyone have a similar issue? please help i just want my car running like it should

ok it wasnt the balancer everything lined up i got the car set to 10 degrees but the cars misfiring and i cant go full throttle without it jerking. i think its the msd distributor before the old one when everything was running like it should. im going to take the msd **** out and get a stock one
ok so today i got to work on the car the first thing i did was disconnect the msd box that in there and hook up the stock cables to the coil. it cranked but didnt start. checked the the wires. it looks like the pcm signal is not getting to the coil. So tomorrow im going to check the wire going to the pcm and coil also the pcm itself
