I thank everyone who responded to my recent request for help.  I have since 
replaced only the coil and after several hundred miles the
problem has not repeated. However, I have a feeling that it might actually have 
been the wire from the dist to the coil, the wire fits
much tighter in the new coil and the old rubber grommet was worn out and not 
holding the wire securely.
Thanks again,
