If my car is stalling every time I first start it in the morning or for every 24 hrs what would be the cause of that? I thought maybe throttle body and ISC needed cleaning but didn't make a difference, maybe the distributor?

maybe tps as well, only time I had trouble with my el or my brothers ef is when they're cold because we run no isc's

Will need to check all the ignition system...dizzy, cap, rotor, coil and leads.....may have a leaky injector or 2......keep looking.

What are things I should be looking for on these things and I have a small head gasket leak that I can see but it's just struggling to kick over.

Do a voltage check on the battery while it's turning over the engine....if it's around 8 or 9 volts, the battery is on it's way out.
Look at the dizzy cap for cracks, worn interior pegs, burnt out centre carbon brush, corroded exterior posts, high impedence on the HT leads,.....wobbly shaft in the dizzy, and evidence of "poling" on the chopper plate/wheel.
Look for cracks on the ignition coil.
If possible, check fuel pressure and flow......check fuel filter.
Check tightness of intake manifold bolts.
