Don't get discouraged. After you find the problem, it will probably seem so small and minor... Most problems seem a lot bigger than they really are until you finally find them...

I might have missed part of your story, but are you sure you have fire on all plugs?? Do you have a mag on it? Or a distributor? Were you checking fire on the coil wire? Or each plug wire??

A cracked cap or moisture in the cap or too much carbon dust buildup can cause it to jump around randomly.

How long did it run smoothly?? Enough to tell it was hitting on all 6??

It has a distrib with brand new points condensor coil. I set the points to 21 then down to a tight 21. New steel wires new Champ D9 plugs gapped within range. I even put the coil from my 930 on and no change. I just looked at one of the plugs I think #6 and had a blue spark. I also have mad sure that all plug wires are pluged down into the cap good and connected fully to the plugs. It run for maybe 4 seconds like it wanted to take off and go. Not long at all then back tried again and then nothing cranking with ether or priming while cranking. I posted down below in this thread on my timing maybe I am off??
