    a low rpm miss could be related to a vacuum leak causing a lean misfire. check all vac lines and look all over manifold for open holes and also spray carb cleaner or starting fluid around head to check intake gasket. If engine reves you have a bad gasket.

    take the cap off and take sand paper to all the points. give them a good sanding, put everything back together and see if that works.
