Depending on what kind of ignition you have, you may want to check and see if your points have slipped -- causes a lot of back firing/stalling/misfiring/no spark at the plugs

Crazy Mopar Guy Have you tested for 12Volts while cranking, as well as with the key just "on"?

levens yeah ill go get a tester and try testing it tommorow ive got a couple of modules so ill try those to!another thing id like to ask is could the ignition switch have anything to do with this?the engine cranks over fine just no fire!

Crazy Mopar Guy If you have 12V to the power terminal of the HEI, do you have a spare one of these babies you can try?

poncho62 Is there 12 volts to the Coil?

If there is, it may be your distributer pickup in the distributer.

levens yeah i have a HEI coil in cap, another thing i ment to add is there is a thing on the firewall that looks like some sort of ground with 3 wires attached one goes to the alternater one to the starter and theres one wire that is cut and i dont know where this wire goes heres a pic of the THING on the firewall!!

Pony If that's all you've done, check the hookup to the coil. The "-" terminal goes to the distributor and the "+' to the resistor if used and to the ignition switch wiring. Good Luck.
