I have a similar problem, almost a miss, but have new plugs, wires, rotor, cap, mixture is OK by duty cycle (I've not checked the EHA yet), so suspect something fuel related like cyclical lean running or some such. Could be at bad fuel distrributor.

All plugs look pretty much the same, slight tan deposit. Milage is fine on the highway (22 or so), stinks in low speed driving.

This kind of shake will fatigue the mounts, I'd bet.
