Well, it seems I am back for more....

Ok, replaced the weights and springs in the dist.

Ran GREAT...better than ever before.

Problem fixed....right?

Wrong. When attempting to leave the house this morning I encountered the same problem once again.

At first, the truck cranked normally. It's cold natured so cranking it is an art of sorts. While trying to crank it the battery got I busted out the jumper cables. Hooked up to my atepfather's jeep and tried again...

Hmmm, acts like it isn't getting spark? that's odd. everything is brand new and worked last night.

So i pull the #1 plug and guess spark AGAIN! already late for class I had to leave it here.

I guess I'll pull the distributor today and see what I find.

Maybe the coil I used is the problem...killing modules.

maybe the pick-up inside the dist is crap...weak magnets.

this is beginning to be frustrating.
