You know, that might be why it did not receive any attention...

In spite of how BAD it may look, those distributor wear (worn?) patterns are actually quite typical...even back in the points & condensor days. Today's higher-voltage systems "eat" metal slightly more than in the old days.

One "trick" to SLOW (but never can STOP) such "pitting/erosion" is to lightly wipe each metal surface (cap studs as well as rotor arm) with dielectric (silicon) grease.

Well, I had a major incident with the stang about an hour ago. I went to go start it and it started up and made this god awful, ear splitting 'SCREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEECH' sound, so I shut it down, popped the hood and my belt was smoking. I think one of the pulleys seized and it's dragging the belt across that pulley. I didnt have the time to check it, and I'm headed to L.A in the morning, but I just thought I would inform you guys. Also sorry for the lack of a thread, I was extremely busy all day.

Sorry, I hope that you are able to figure out the problem without too many Xist adventures. Good luck!
