I thought that might be the case (LT).  I flipped the coil over last weekend 
(to the proper top down arrangement) and it seems to be acting up ever 
since.  I'll ensure that the connection there is in order, as well as the 
dist wires.

Now if the weather would just warm up and someone would adopt two toddlers - 
so I can get out to the carport after work and look at it. ;)

Classic (!) symptom of an intermittent connection in the ignition LT
circuit, a break in this circuit will affect both running and the tach.

Check the connections in the white - tach - white - coil - white/black -
distributor circuit, paying particular attention to the flexible wires
inside the distributor.  When accelerating in any gear the change in vacuum
causes the points plate to twist, which flexes these wires, and eventually
they can break either at the terminations or inside the insulation.
