Have you replaced the ignition coil? What type is it?

I'd like to make sure the distributor and coil are both well grounded. If the pocket for the distributor was corroded you may have made a little better connection when you removed it to replace the pickup coil, but now it is loosing ground when it heats up. Or it could have a problem with heating up the module because of the bad ground.
