I know you said you had the mechanic pull the flywheel, but was the key intact??

Yea usually the ignition module is the one that goes out 1st in them 2-pc. but again not allways.   I have noticed now that there are a few companys starting to offer new AM ones now on Flea-bay. Pricey though. Also, make sure there are no nicks on your plug wire and shorting out or crossfiring.  And  where the wire goes into the coil pack, they sometimes work loose for some reason.

I taped up the wire that had the nicks in it, no more backfiring but not running 100% smooth. I think I might replace the seals and maybe the coil.

Your coil is probably on its way out and you can get a new piston and jug for it Fairly cheap.  A meteor piston kit is sold at HLSupply.com for $30 if the jus looks good and not scored I would just do the piston and rings or just ring I  believe in the 266 case.
