    check your timing, its probably needs advanced a couple of degrees

    set the pully and the cam gear to top dead center, then advance the dizzy from there to advance the timing

    Water can drip from the tail pipe. It's typically condensation or a byproduct of the cat.

    When you set your timing, I believe that you have to jumper the plug near the driver's motor mount. You shouldn't have to change the cam timing. Check the ignition timing again with a light. If you can't turn the distributor far enough, then double check to see that you have the timing belt right, and that it's not off a tooth.

    Also when you are adjusting the idle, you are turning the little brass screw on the throttle body right?

    when you say off by tooth do you mean the r.r the belt or turn the crank.

    Meaning that the cam is off one tooth. Put at TDC and see if all your marks line up.
