did distributor cap, rotor, plugs, wires. So I will assume you can check for spark but haven't?

that dam noise you mentioned has me making it between my lips , I could almost hear it but the only two places that jumped at me were arcing and manifold. You may find the spark is poor because the coil is arcing.

what else goes in time with the plugs firing. TRY to pin point the area where rhythmic sound is coming from. Try looking when it's pitch dark for any visible arcing.
