After unplugging the hot wire to the distributor cap for 10 or 15 seconds, and plugging it back in, It fires right up. Anyone ever experience this? Thanks, Bob.
Unless you have something draining the battery (stereo, amp, etc.) or the battery is getting old, it should not discharge while setting. You need to find out what is draining the battery.
