get a set of inline spark testers. a plug that fires outside the cyl might not fire under compression.

Plus 1 on the inline tester. The 79 originally came with a prestolite Ign and were known for problems. If it is the coil it takes a point coil. Both coil and module can show heat related problems and can show good cold. Not many 79s still have the original ign.
