Distributor question
« on: July 09, 2006, 12:44:55 AM »
Who do we know that can recurve/inspect an GM HEI and give it a clean bill of health? My Poncho sporatically falls on its face at part throttle and today  died completly. Im blaming it on spark and not fuel at this point. I had this distributor on two different engines and both engines acted the same way, it will run great these two miles then unexplainably stumble.

Have you checked the vacuum advance?  Just a thought.

It keeps time. Appears to function properly.

Send me an email with your email address and I'll send you the dianosis tree from the service manual.  Go through that and you should figure out the problem.
