Small block chevy parts are cheap. Bet you pay less then that 30 for cap and rotor. Also I have seen brand new plugs be bad, so swap wire and plug from another cyl to check. Also the older small block Chevys, what your 283 is, did have a cam wear problem. Wile it may have nice compression, maybe the valves are not opening enough to run[or run well] that one cyl.
