Movement of the wires still seemed to be a factor, particulalrly disconnecting and reconnecting the ignition coil wire.

I still plan to clean all of my electrical contacts between the battery and spark plugs. This type of heat issue arose once before in an ignition wire. The basic dynamics of both problems match. I'll know for sure after I clean the wires and distributor parts tonight. If the problem persists I'll shift more of my focus to fuel/air mixture.

Incidently, Is that area of the valve cover that the wires sit on function as a type of heat sink?
