    If I use the given LD's (generated with refraction) and solve assuming there is no refraction, I get:

    3:23:04

    34:48:53
    77:05:15

    Agreeing quite well with your lat, but trading time and long.

    But, the problem is now inconsistent and I'm not sure the solution means anything.

    "Thus I get:
    Time = 03h 28m 02s
    Lat = N 34d 52.1'
    Lon = W 74d 55.3'"
