check wires to and from coil and spark plug wire from coil to center of distributor. Also make sure the cap and rotor of the distributor are in good shape. check for carbon (black tracks) inside the cap, and clean if necessary. Any roughness on tip of rotor may be lightly sanded to get a nice square edge (makes a better spark). Hope this gives you a good start.
