Correct. Very puzzling situation!
OK Thanks. Was hoping to avoid major work. The backup mechanic who tuned it up did not impress me a bit!!! He wanted to start taking the heads off of the motor to look around.
I'll look down that avenue and see what is required to make that swap.
I have been tied up for the last week but replaced the distributor as you suggested. I was able to easily set the timing but still have essentially the same issue with the #3 cylinder not seeming to be doing anything at low rpm's. the plugs were placed on the entire engine bu a mechanic and I replaced the one on #3 cylinder a while back. I'm going to swap plugs in #1 and 3 cylinders just to see if anything changes.
