The first thing to check for is a tune up, if you haven't already. Plugs and wires, and if it is still acting up, check the coil, make sure it's getting spark. If you have spark to the plug, then go with a compression test.
Good luck!

Determine what cylinder is misfiring and do a compression test on that cylinder. Compare it with a cylinder that is not misfiring. You should have no more than 20% difference between the good cylinder and the bad cylinder. If it is low on compression, suspect a burn valve or bad valve seat... and it will require cylinder head repair. If it is good on compression, then look for a faulty injector or some other reason for the misfire on the dead cylinder.

Did you get the wire on in the right spot? The coil should be marked for which cylinders they go to.

The only thing in the chain you haven't done yet is the pulse transducer in the distributor. I don't know if it is at fault since they often fail completely, not intermittently, but I would probably replace that too if it was my problem.
Before you do that though, it would be wise to locate the connectors that are surely between the transducer and the rest of the ignition system.  The voltages & currents that are produced by the transducer are small and a lightly corroded connection could cause the kind of problem you are having.
