Problem solved (at least it appears to be)! Thanks to everyone for their input, especially Ross. I looked at the wire from the points to the coil, which although not chafed was loose to the point where I could pull it away from the points with my fingers. It had contact, but I'm guessing when the vacuum advanced the timing it would move the points away from the wire breaking the connection and then reconnect when timing retarded. I wouldn't have looked there without all of your input.

I need to get a more reliable mechanic...
