If it was hard to start one of the plugs may have got fouled in the process. Mine usually starts right up but it needs a new distributor cap. One of the terminals inside the cap will corrode and cause a miss when under load. I have been just polishing it up with a pocket knife once in a while until I get a new one. Sometimes a miss will be hard to track down. I thought for sure that mine had a bad plug or ignition wire until checking deeper.

Yeah mine had a complete tune up in Feb this year, had the Points, Rotor, Cap, Plugs, and plug wires replaced. Also retimed the engine and adjusted carburetor.
But its been doing fine all afternoon once that 4th cylinder kicked in so I guess it was just a little hiccup.
