You can't. Just get another vacuum advance distributor.

How do you know this? Checking temperature of header primaries or pulling plugs? An HEI non computer distributor doesn't know left from right bank.

No heat from passenger headers and no exhaust from passenger exhaust.

These valve covers weren't garbage before they were used wrong. Were these valve covers installed upside down? Who put these roller rockers on this engine without checking clearances? Have you found any bent pushrods? There's no way the valve covers would cause the valves not to open properly, unless you've got a bunch of bent pushrods! Being on only one side of the engine leads me to suspect the upside-down valve cover and bent pushrods. You CAN'T blame "garbage valve covers"!

Bent pushrods will cause loose valves. You need help from someone who knows engines. Are you having fun yet?

(I forgot to read post #4)
