Due to the lack of maintenance the car has received thus far I decided it would wise to update the entire ignition system.  The ignition coil had already failed on me the first day that I bought the car, so that was the first item to replace.  From there I removed the intake manifold to clean and replace the distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs and wires.  The coil I decided to install was a higher voltage (18,000 V compared to the stock 15,000 V).  This forced me to use a higher resistance compensating resistor.  While installing the intake manifold back onto the engine I also cracked the side of the new distributor cap, so a new one was purchased locally.
