There should be only one wire going in the distributor that's coming from the coil negative that goes to the point/s-try gapping it and see what happens.

The wires going to the coil disconnect it-isolate it from ground, turn igniton switch on find the wire that has power on it and put that wire on the positive side of the coil the others goes to the negative of the coil.

Sounds tight somewhere-open the plugs out and investigate-could be the valves not opening or tight engine bearings-could be anything internally. Check it out.
