Question about 1966 Ford Mustang
What needs to be checked and verified is the point gap. And if it is adjusted to the correct dwell, the timing will need to be set again also. Oil inside the ditributor and contaminating the points as well as the condensor is not good. You probably has a bad seal in the distributor shaft,causing oil to creep up into the distributor. You have replaced everything else, so that rules out those components,therefor I would check or have someone check the distributor and point dwell setting.
By the way, points always become out of spec,and should be checked regularly.
Also check for a possible vacuum leak on any hoses; cracks or splits. I know there are not many on this year vehicle, so it should be an easy task.
