if it doesn't run "hot-wired" then you have an internal dizzy problem. When you did all that swapping out did you put the carbon coil transfer pin, It's that pin that connects the coil to the cap normally has a spring and a rubber washer and needs some di-electric grease on it.
Yea I got the transfer pin in there. I'll try running a jumper ground to the batt and sees what happens. And Cobalt: I used a universal harness, so I have no actual 3-pin connector to plug into the distributor. Just 3 separate wires (coil, tach and my separate ground. feel me?
