I still think that you should investigate this from a misfiring angle.

Make sure that your ignition components are in good shape.

Put a fresh set of plugs in.

Spray some carb cleaner around the intake manifold and injectors and see if you can find a vacuum leak.

See if you can isolate the miss by "cracking" the lines on the fuel distributor one-by-one. If you crack one and the miss does not change, then you have found it. Replace the injectors and seals on the weak cylinder(s).
