Wouldn't have expected the TCI to cause intermittent stuff like that, it would usually be hard fail, but what you describe sounds a LOT like the pickup coil type problem which is pretty much always two or four cylinders.

Have you had a look under the timing cover? I had been trying to upgrade my carbs with a dynojet kit. Must have had them off half a dozen times swapping out jets, and it was still running crappy, so I went back to what I started with, and still ran like crap. Turns out the screws that hold the pick-up coil assembly on the engine had come out, and the whole pick up coil assembly was just flopping around under the cover. Don't put anti-seize on those screws when you put them back in there :/
