One question , is the distributor earth good.
Well looking at my distributor the earth wire is missing , but I can't quite see how it should work as the base plate looks like it's fixed directly to the body where the earth wire should be.
I am going to fit a new earth wire , but from the picture below , am I missing something within the distributor.
The date stamped on the side surprises me as its 1988 so not original.

You could probably add write from ignition module to earth via a mounting screws for testing but I doubt is an earth problem there.
Quite common for a replacement dist to be fitted as they wear and get play in the shaft. Which leads to increased spark scatter.
