The darkness test can be made a bit more effective with a fine mist of water 
from a squirt bottle - like a Windex sprayer or such.  Duct tape and Windex 
can fix anything - right?

Also, check that all ignition electrical connections are solid (including 
grounds) and that there are no pinched wires like that little guy that 
passes through the side of the distributor for example.
