I never disrespect my dad. Period. But I replaced the distributor and now it runs fine. How come only one person suggested anything about the distributor? I came here once before asking about a problem with our truck and you all gave me the wrong answers. Which made me hesitant to post here again and just like last time I got everyone telling me it was something it wasn't.

You can just start repacing everything. It might work too. My stratagy is to find the failed component. The whole distributor just cracked in half, blew the module, launched the bshing, and roasted the vacuum pod. Because you ran open headers. Your tip off is because your failed spark plugs made a sound that you recognized.

Go spend more of your daddys money.

You just keep assuming things about me. So I'm gonna assume you can't stand the thought that an 18 year old thought of something you never suggested so now you're going to try and make it look like I'm some kind of spoiled kid that doesn't know anything.

The first reply. 1st thing i mention was what your timing is ? If you replaced the distributor that means your timing was incorrect due to a failure of a part in the distributor. Either the curve was off or absent.

So what was wrong with the distributor?

Youre a punk.

No assumptions necessary, mate. You're a cocky punk who expects someone from miles away to diagnose a problem, (for FREE, mind you) without even supplying details about the vehicle so that someone actually knows what you have.

My suggestion to you is to forget all these know-nothing old timers and go into business for yourself diagnosing problems from hundreds or thousands of miles away. It's quite obvious you need no one here. So, why ask?

My brother works at a place that changes oil that also has a mechanic shop in the same building and my brother told the OWNER and another MECHANIC there less than what I told you and they both said distributor and they told him this stuff for FREE. So if you guys on here don't know what you're talking about why say anything? Go into business for myself? You read me like a book considering I'm going to college to be a mechanic. Not some hobbyist in a garage that thinks they know something that they don't.

I literally taught my Auto Tech class in high school because the teacher didn't even know how to change oil. Know more than most less than some.

What had failed in the distributor, what was the curve doing before replacement, what did you set the timing curve up as with the replacement? This is pretty sketchy and nobody should give addvice to replace something with out diagnostics to support their recommendation.

Nobody here got any information to determine the whole distributor needed replacement. Very few reasons to do so, and age alone has nothing to do with it. Why not replace the whole truck, you have no knowledge of how to fix something.

If you cant help yourself, maybe find an adult to help you get your mind straight.

With your attitude you will be a virgin for a long time.

I normally don't let myself get drawn into threads that become antagonistic but I have followed this thread and have a few observations.

1 This forum is for people who share a love of cars and the automobile hobby in general.

2 While this is a great place to get advise, no one here claims to have all the answers or be able to accurately diagnose, with certainty, a problem with a vehicle miles away.

3 You have shown total disregard for the people who have tried to help you instead of appreciating the attempt to help whether you agreed with the advise or not.

If you can not come onto the forum with a good and positive attitude it would be best if you looked elsewhere for your advise.

I realize if you feel Spinn is a senile bat at age 41, you must really think I am over the hill but I would hope would grow up and mature before you get out in the world and try to make a living. Behaving like an immature child does not help you nor the members of this forum.

I was feeling positive when I started this thread think of gee maybe in a years time these people will have gotten people on the forum that know what they're talking about. But when you try and tell me that it's one thing when I know it's clearly not and I tell you that and you don't believe me that's when I start to think you have less sense than God gave a rock. I am on another forum which I'm a regular on but I doesn't have as many people as this one and I thought once again maybe somebody here knows something. But I was wrong.

If you look at the number of members here that were willing to help you, you will notice that they have a combined amount of experience of at least 1-200 years, all added together.
Your 18, probably have some talent, but dont know it all.

The first response was by a tech who was pretty much on top of your issue with the truck .

No one is trying to make you look stupid here. Your doing a good job on your own however.

You need to lighten up. If not, I wont have much of a choice but to dump this thread, as it has sniping and bickering in almost every post. That doesnt give much value for anyone who comes in to gain any knowledge.
If your really smart, you will chill out, make some friends, fix a few things.
Or....

I thought this thread was useless. Go a head and waste it.
