Default help with Mallory install

I'm on the last step of my bolt on 8BA engine mods. With help from forum members the intake/carb and heads went well. Am ready to install the Mallory dual point (CZ275AX) and a trial fit looks good with the gear engaging and the hold down lug bottoming on the head. The Mallory shaft extends past the gear and the removed Loadmatic does not. Should this extention be removed? The timer cover is cast iron. Should the gear get some assembly lube on final installation? I had a local mechanic spin the distributor and it has a total of 21 degrees advance (vacuum and centrifugal combined) @ 2200 rpm. Will the stock coil work OK? I know a lot of members swear by the converted Chevy units but I want a period look.

I tried to post pictures but all attempts to upload failed and I'm computer chalanged.

Thanks in advance for any help.
