So I finally got my MT to run right! I replaced plugs twice with 437 Autolites, new solid core plug wires from Agri-Services, new cap, rotor and dust cover. I then replaced the terminal stud on the distributor and made sure the weights were moving freely. I put in a Pretronix Flame Thrower 6 volt coil. I then put in a new ignition switch and found the fuse holder was in poor shape so I replaced that as well. Also put in a second new set of points and a condenser. Re-timed per the owners manual and set plug and point gap as well. It now runs great! I have a timing light on the way and will time it that way as well. I have no idea what truly fixed it at this point. Thanks to all who helped.

Sure sounds good now Eric.

The ignition system is in very good shape.

Thanks for sharing the video with us.

Nice video. That's a good long run for a driveway.

The back part goes to our neighbors sandpit/gravel operation but provides a second way out if the hill gets bad at the street. Had to use it a few times this year so far.
