If you have 6 volts, then you still need the original ballast resistor.

Have you checked for fuel flow out the bottom of the carb? You should get a pint jar full in 2 to 3 minutes. The stand pipe inside of tank can become plugged restriction fuel flow.
You still could have problems with the carb. things can get in passage ways that air alone will not remove. some run wire thru all the holes. some clean the jets with welding tip cleaners. I would sure look a lot more before I would tear down the front end.

almost sounds like the spark advance is not working right, but you said you installed a new distributor. new as in new or as in different?

If you have access to a carb off off a good running machine, it would be an easy swap for test purposes.
Good Luck
