Things to replace which cost nothing and save you tons of time:
- Get new distributor cap and rotor, small amount of play messes with timing.
- Replace fuel line.
- Check the fuel filter in the pick up in the tank (blockages can give headaches)
- Proper set of plug leads
- New leads from battery to starter motor.
Everything else gets a little more pricey :P
It is truly important to have all the basics taken care of first. The only thing I would add to your list is spark plugs.
