Here is what i normally do for a condition like yours
1. check plugs/wires/cap/rotor.
2.Check fuel pressure.
3.for removal of the Dist(if you decide to pull it) you need to mark the base of dist and the block so it goes in exactly like it came out...then next mark the rotor point to the side of the dist. to insure it is pointing in the right spot. remove dist hold down/wires then pull it out....
