have you pulled the valve covers and checked the valve spring tension? that would be my guess- bad spring.

if your timing is stable with the light then it shouldnt be a bad chain... if timing jumps around at all then look into the chain.

did you check the actual spring tension or just make sure they werent broken? a spring can lose tension without breaking if its ever been over-revved.. may look fine but until you test it you wont know... also the balast resistor could be bad... or the capacitor
