For the poor power feed to the coil question make up a jumper wire and hook it directly from the battery to the coil the same way as a car thief.
Junk ignition parts are certainly a possibility as the cool down indicates but look for a possible short circuit as well. That can be checked with a test light. If it doesn't flash while cranking there is a short in the distributor or junk parts.
For fuel starvation pull a plug after cranking and no start.
When you say - rebuilt distributor - does that mean it was sent to a rebuilder who put it on a SUN distributor machine? They are out there.
If those systems check out, do a compression test. The rings may be sticking.
