Default Re: Jerky Runner

Is the ignition cable an original one ? I had a very similar experience recently with my car, and finally diagnosed the problem as an intermittent short inside the cable conduit. the wire inside was almost 90 years old and the insulation was badly cracked and falling off. Found this only after rebuilding the distributor and replacing the coil.....all the parts I replaced were working just find. Checking the ignition cable never occurred to me.
