Unilite ignition problem

The unilite ign. with pertronics pickup in my 302 (95) is giving me a fit. i notice that in other posts Ive seen there are three wires coming from the dist. mine has 1 black 1 red no others. The engine has an intermittent miss as the engine is throttled hard. but not all the time, it varies from day to day. this is a non vacuum dist. with new wires, plugs, coil, and new wiring harness (yes the problem was happening before the wiring harness change). Most of you don't seem to care for the unilite setup so what do you suggest.

It could also be a valve spring or valve guide/seat going away..

I hope not, roller motor with dart heads and all the right stuff. this thing is street driven and never abused, about 22,000 miles and well maintained. I never even thought about a mechanical issue.
