im guessing you changed the cap and rotor after the incident so it should be clean and dry i would double check all your spark plug wires if you are leaking spark thru a wire it could be transfering to another plug wire firing a cylinder off at the wrong time. if you want to blame the icm (the points right?) i would make sure they look nice and clean and no excessive movement not to mention the shaft it is on
