Sorry really good most of the time starts to stall after it gets hot

Thanks that helps. Since it stalls when it gets hot. A lot of times these distributors develop a small internal oil leak that messes with the cam sensor signal. If you remove the cap and and lower cover you can generally see the oil intrusion. Replacing the distributor corrects the problem.
