    The black and purple wires being in the same slot is normal.

    The left dash indicator, front indicator and rear indicator bulbs are tied together, directly - If one burns, they all should.

    A lot of D owners use an ACTRON Tach Dwell Voltmeter Model CP7605 to set their dwell. (Another for $22.99 total, used.) Like many others, you simply set the switch to "RPM", connect the Black clip...

    $.03

    Reversing the polarity on the coil will not hurt it, but it will reduce the spark. And, if the coil is causing the needle to jump, you should be able to hear the engine miss.

    With all of...

    You might try connecting a handheld tach and see if it also jumps -- Could be a loose connection feeding the dash tach (but no problem to the distributor).

    I'd suggest (re)checking the pulse ratios at D:04:15, 5 in the WSM.

    P.S. Congrats!

    If a plug wire is going to the wrong cylinder, that cylinder (and the cylinder the wire is supposed to go to) will fire at the wrong time, if at all.

    Mine was binding like Dave's when I got the car.

    That would kill the two cylinders and at least 1/3 of your power, probably more...should of ran like dodo.

    For the first part- When it is <15C, the dwell should be 50-60 = 25-30 on 8-cyl scale, steady. Your's is 3 below the minimum. Given that, 1. and 2. above makes sense. And for 3., it is dead on...

    I would shoot the cylinder head next to the gauge sending unit and compare it to the gauge's reading.

    Shooting the radiator's inlet and outlet can tell you a lot.

    What's bugging me here is that the thermostat shouldn't let the temp drop below 195 F, and, 220F is acceptable.
    Not to mention that the gauges are not known for accuracy.

    But I have to agree...

    I'm thinking pressure can be in the system if the throttle is closed when you shut it off and it can build up afterwards - It purges only when the engine is running.
