You went down the checklist; did you find anything to correct? If not, you still may have an intermittent problem like a marginal electrical connector somewhere. Jim
Jim - Again thanks for the help and follow-up.

A few additional things I did was re-clean all the electrical connections on the Distributor and components with some rubbing alcohol. When I rebuilt, I found quite a bit of oil in the cap. I had cleaned all parts the first time but did it again anyway. Also, the ignitor three prong connection is not a very good/tight connection (#1 suspect) -- I also don't hear the whine which may or may not be an indication of weakening.

Tim - I think Jim is right - it wasn't h-locked. I think the ignitor three prong came loose during the initial drives. The reason I think this is that the car ran fine, turned it off, let it sit for a few hours, then no go.
