Don't worry about the points and all that BS, focus on the car. Our system has some serious defects in it. You appreciate it and that's fine for me.
Back to the car:
IF my info is right and my interpretation is right, this is how it should work.
The top three are 3-1-5 cylinders.
On the engine, the number 5 cylinder is on the passenger side closest to the firewall, then comes #3 and the front one is the #1 cylinder.
Keep in mind what Jesses said:"Weak coil pack for that cylinder, loss of compression-burn exhaust valve- vacuum leaks, anything that causes an unusually lean fuel mixture (lean misfire), dirty fuel injectors, low fuel pressure, or even bad fuel"
IF the routing is right, and code is still there and the wires are on tight and the plug is gapped right, then we need to change directions. And if this proves true, pull the plug on the misfiring cylinder, take a pc and up load it. When you put it back in, move it to another cylinder and put that cylinders plug in the number one cylinder. IF the mis-fires moves to the other cylinder, we have a bad plug. IF the mis fire stays on number one, well pick up there.
