I did consider going the "just replace everything route". I already had a new coil still in the box and a rebuilt distributor ready to go. It's been much wetter than normal for many months now, much longer than I've been fighting this problem. It seemed like weather might be contributing. At some point I did try putting the new coil on it, but the old coil must have been in a happy moment when I did that test. In hindsight, I should have just left the new coil on it. Ain't hindsight great.
