So do you have a good solid spark? Lots of fuel obviously, sometimes the spark can be weak at idle. Use an inductive timing light and check spark from the coil. If that is good check it from the number one wire and check timing. The vacuum line to the distributor should be plugged. The vacuum solenoid shouldn't open until over 1000 rpm. Check the other plugs too. They should cause the light to flash regularly even though they won't match up on the timing marks. If they don't flash steadily you are not getting a steady spark. I have had the boots on the plug wires rub through and short to the bottom of the throttle body. It may not be obvious, maybe only a pinhole, but it doesn't take much.
Hope it helps,
