I don't know.. I know that my gmc pick up with a 350 ran when the wires were all mixed up . The HEI dizzy jumps spark all over . Are you getting full hp ? I don't know.
I do know that if you only able to see the timing mark using the number 5 wire something is way off.
The biggest clue is that you say you are pretty sure the dizzy was put back in the way it came out.
Verify this by bringing numer 1 up to tdc and see where the rotor is pointing. You either didn't get it stabbed right or the wires are all mixed up .
