    I can almost promise you that it's the coil or dist. When it starts to get hot or it cuts out. Like when you have a alt. that works but when it gets hot it stops charging. Honda dist. are magnetic pickup units. so its not really the same but. If the dist. is not reading the teath in the dist. and sending a signal to the ecu you will not have a spark. hence spark timing. find another dist, and barrow it for an afternoon \see if you fix your problem then buy a new one.
