My ignition coil is ticking

I just quited my noisey valve train with a valve adjustment,
only to realize that it wasn't only the valves ticking. It was/is also my ignition coil.
The car still runs lousy after warm up and restarting when warm.
Could this poor performance be coil related?
Fuel pressure, trigger points and vacuum lines seem to be ok.
The distributor is maximally advanced on it's mounting and reads 5 btdc @ 750 rpm
Car: 72 350sl, W117 engine

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
