Hmmm...sounds like you still haven't had much luck narrowing it down. Bummer.

Have you checked the inside of your distributor cap? Look for cracks and carbon tracking inside. Check the rotor for cracks....if you haven't done that already, that is.

Do you have a spare spark plug laying around? If you do, take one of the plug leads off the engine and plug it into the spare spark plug. If you have a test lead with alligator clips on both ends, clip one end to the threads of the spark plug and the other end to chassis ground. Have someone turn the engine over while you observe the plug to see if you can see an arc jumping the plug gap. DO NOT HOLD UNTO THE PLUG WHILE YOU'RE DOING THIS!
