I think I fixed it.

Either the rubbing block had worn down or the adjustment slipped, but by one way or another the ignition point gap had closed up significantly in just 400 miles. I reset it and now it runs fine.

That's weird. I lubricated the point cam. It should not have worn down the rubbing block that fast. I don't really like the whole locking screw method of setting these points. I might put a Pertronix unit in there if this will be an ongoing problem.
