Some do run fine without the hookup and yours did as well it seems. The problem 
you are having started suddenly from what you have said. I am guessing 
something like the idea of the dizzy slipping out of place or something like 
that. I still think it is an ignition issue.

I found three openings on my intake manifold:
one a nipple about 1/4 inch which is welded shut;
one a large pipe about 1/2 inch or so, which I suspect would normally 
go to the emission canister by the right fender (which is non 
operative), and that is also pounded closed and welded shut;
another nipple of approximately 1/4 inch which has a rubber cap sitting 
over it.
Nothing else.
Could it be that my distributor hasn't had anything attached all this 
time and would it still run as well as it has?
