I wouldn't tell people your a mechanic if you can't trouble shoot a SBC. I'm just bustin your balls. Your going to have to be more specific.

hey camarofanatic86

I asked my main mechanic at my shop & he reminded me of two funny incidents one was a 460 ford one minute it ran fine the next second it blow fire through the carb then in two seconds it would purr then cough then go smooth well there was a little pin down in the distributor that held the rotor & base plate in place so that thwe rotor could turn at the right speed until that tiny tiny pin broke Now we wonder if the rod coming down from the ignition key into the switch at the bottom of the steering column was reinstalled in the restoration. We've disabled a few cars this way just for fun. Most people think that the ignition on old chevies is totally electronic from the key down well it isn't except for the real oldies. give us more info please.
