the common fail point on the xr3 ignition was a small black box on the distributer called an ignition amplifier, in the old days you just borrowed one from your mate with the same car to see if it was the problem,how you would check now is a bit more difficult.there should also a supressor arrangement in the passenger strut top/inner wing that can sometimes fail. its a little grey box with a red and green wire going in. You could test that by bypassing it.do a google search for the amplifier and you might find a way to test it.
