Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!If the problem seemingly started as a result of installing an aftermarket distributor then I would first suspect the pickup plate. I'm assuming it was a complete distributor. Aftermarket electrical parts often cause repeat issues and if there were no other problems before this then it's likely the pickup plate is causing this.Are you missing spark when it dies?
