    After you replaced the distributor, and ran the car for 10 mins did you check for spark? If no spark, Did you replace the coil when you replaced the distributor? If you did not, I would check the coil for any cracks on the body. If you replaced the coil with the distributor then you should check the coil igniter AFTER the the 10 mins because if you test when the system is cold it will check out good.
