Just had a thought, was there any changes to the gaskets used for the new style engine cover and timing cover?
I recall there being a big oval gasket for the engine cover and a small round gasket for the ignition cover when I installed mine, but can't recall what the material was.

Perhaps a thicker/different gasket material would minimize heat transfer?
Maybe something similar to the phenolic gasket for intake port on heads.
Would a phenolic gasket or silicone build-a-gasket on just the ignition cover help?

I tried a thicker gasket to no avail. I think my cut-out / heating problem was due to internal electronics of the ignition unit. Problem went away upon replacement
