yes all ways check your points i had that happen one time over looked them replaced all kinds of stuff that didn't need to be replaced... the car ran great shut it off and when i went to start it same thing cracking and popping sounded like it wanted to run even started once ran like crap though..

matt167 check the cap for carbon tracing carefully.. shut my '51 235 off 1 day and couldn't restart. pop and crack every once in a while, and I replaced points, wires, but still had no go.. checked distributor cap and it had bad carbon tracing, so I threw an older 1 on it and it ran

BOBCRMAN@aol.com Timing or ignition wire fowl up. Find TDC no.1. Then rewire cap proper firing order.. Most 6's 153 624..
