Maybe it's just those prices, yikes.
I would be inclined replace the entire dizzy ebay $178, given the way things looked, they can get worn on an old motor, which should include all needed parts (I think)...check the sensor wires very carefully for splits/damage..wiggle it to see if the motor stalls, XJ wires can be "bad inside"

Definitely thinking I might just replace the whole lot - have money coming in just over a week from now and I'm going to hit Rockauto for a whole lot of parts. In the mean time, I took the dist cap off, cam sensor (coil pickup, your choice) and cleaned everything up - the cam sensor ribbon cable was a little kinked where it exits the sensor itself, so I straightened that out and reinstalled it in a way where that won't happen. I've done a couple of shorter runs to the shops and back and so far, zero issues. I need to do a horse feed run today so that will be the big test - sure hope it doesn't die out on me at 100kph on the motorway with a full load of hay!! Hah...

Can anyone tell me, from my pictures on the last page, does the dist cap button look worn to you?

It's practically flush with the plastic housing. Maybe this is also to blame for some of the erratic running? Thinking I should just pick up a dist cap locally in the mean time to be safe.
