1967 MGB GT – Ignition Woes

Having owned the MG for about two years now I’m still enjoying it every time I drive it. However, I have an issue that seems to reoccur all too frequently. It seems that whenever I take the car for a long-ish drive, say more than an hour or so I get an intermittent miss-fire that gradually gets worse until the inevitable breakdown.  On each occasion I’ve been able to replace the condenser and get going again.  Generally condensers are supposed to last a while but I hear poor quality replacements are common these days and can lead to issues like I described. Surely I haven’t had three bad ones on the trot though?!  Perhaps I have another issue in the electrical system somewhere causing this premature failure? Maybe I need to switch to electronic ignition and forget about condensers forever!
