Well, I don't know anything either, but that never stopped me.

My guess is that the trigger point for the electronic ignition,
relative to the lobes on the distributor shaft, is simply in a
different place than it would be for points.  So, changing nothing
other than what sits on the plate, the timing could be way off.
