Yes, Doug said he changed the cap, wires, etc, with known good running

They can be really subtle and difficult to see.  The track could be aggravated by some extremely high resistance between disty and plug.  The high voltage wants to find a ground, be it the electrode in the plug or a hair fine carbon track in the disty cap.
