Default 1963 Ignition Problem

!963 Ignition. I have a 1963 327-300 that I am converting to electronic ignition. The car was running great after installing a new coil, plugs, and ignition wires. I removed the distributor to install the electronic ignition. See Photo 1. When I replaced the distributor it would only go in as in Photo 2 (slightly advanced). I rotated the engine to 1 TDC and it aligned as seen in Photo 3 ( still advance by a cylinder). While the engine will start, it really chugs and diesels. Any suggestions for my next step? As I said, the engine was running great!
