Have you checked the points gap?

That bond can be easily cracked if it's dropped or bumped real hard.

Dunno, that was so many years ago I don't even remember which auto parts store I got it at.
Just know it was a new one, not a re-man.

It doesn't look that serious to me.
There seems to be a buckle in the roof on the right side. That door post (Rt. A pillar) will need a little pulling on a frame machine.
Left side looks OK.

A 351W is not a good choice for '65-'66 Mustangs.

Vacuum mod must be leaking fluid.
