That could be a bad connection inside the ignition switch,

Thank you, that is the only thing that I haven't replaced. When the key is off is the magnetic coil in the distrib suppose to be megnetic

You have electronic ignition? I would try jumping the ignition switch to provide power directly to the ignition (hot wire) to confirm a bad switch.
