1975 vette 350 starting problems

Car would run 30 or 40 miles and start to spit & sputter and backfire thru exhaust and die, wait 15 20 minutes it would start and go 20 to 30 miles and do the same thing again. Got car home and checked fuel, spark and rotor pointing to #1 on compression, distributor was only hand tight, moved dist. until car started, set timing and shut off and tightened dist. now car will not start again, Rotor still pointing towards #1 on compression. any ideas??? Ignition module,distributor, coil????
