I know ths is late, but I had the same problem. I replaced the plugs, plug wires, rotor & cap, ignition coil & then the entire distributor -- no change. What finally fixed the problem was a new "igniter" from a junkyard -- small device located on the bracket which holds the coil & fusebox. The old igniter was a bit corroded on the back from fumes from the battery. While I was at it, I also put in a new ignition condensor which is mounted on the same bracket -- but later determined that the old condensor was fine. A new igniter is expensive (>$100) but you can get one chepaly if you pull your own from a junkyard (I paid $7 for mine). Good luck.
