First off, welcome to the forum. Secondly, please give us more info on what is going on and, double check your post before you post it. Your post is very hard to read and understand. Maybe then the members of this board can help.

1995 Z28 Camaro distributor problems

I have a 1995 Z28 Camaro. I had to have a fuel pump put in it. Just after a couple of days it started dying. I took it back to the Chevrolet dealership. They said the distributor was bad. This is about the 6th. distributor I've put in it. I put a new wiring harness in it this time too. A couple of weeks later, it is randomly dying on me again. Any suggestions???

The distributor is one of the last things I would suspect, especially since you have put six on it already. Something else is going on with it.
1. When it dies, will it start right back up or do you have to let it sit for a bit?
2. Did it do this before the new fuel pump was installed?

When you say "will not crank", are you saying that after it dies it will turn over but not start....... or are you saying that the motor will not turn over?

Since you installed a new wiring harness, check all the connections for tight. What kind of wiring harness did you install?

That is an LT1 with an Opti Spark distributor mounted under the water pump. Since it is new (6 of them), and the harness is new, I would look into the coil. Sure sounds like the coil is about done. Gets warm and dies, cools off and works again. Just a thought. I believe it's mounted on the left forward cylinder head. Also, is the check engine light on at all?

The opti will usually throw a code if it is failing. A tech II scanner would be of some use here to see what is going on when the engine is running. If you have to wait a long time to get it to restart, it could be an icm issue. That is the little module attached to the passenger cylinder head. You can do the "washer" trick and space it away from the cylinder head so it doesn't get so hot. It could also be a coolant temp sensor issue. There are 2 of them on your LT1. One is for the gauge in the dash the other is for the pcm. That sensor is located in the water pump. If/when they go bad the computer will think the motor isn't warmed up and will keep the mixture very rich. The motor will run for a few minutes and then slowly bog out and die. You will smell fuel if this is happening though.

Go to shbox.com and have a look around. It is a VERY detailed website of schematics and troubleshooting tips for LT1 engines.

Here is an opti follow through:
