That was the EST (electronic spark timing) dizzy. They were the next step along from the mech/vac advance dizzy's.
Sounds to me more like a carby problem though. These carby's had an auto choke on them which was known to bugger up. It's the green bit on the side of the carby. Take the air cleaner off and check if the auto choke is operating properly.
