When all logical checks fail, I look for something stupid that has happened. If this problem has been creeping up on you, perhaps the distributor clamp has loosened up and permitted the distributor to slowly rotate to the point where the timing is seriously out of spec. This actually happened to me on a Porsche that I once owned. It is an easy thing to check and fix. If the distributor body can be rotated by hand, that is the problem.
