    I was out wheelin' lightly today just doing some trail running and I hit a good size bump and when I came down the truck died. So, I tried to start it again it will just turn over it won't catch. I checked the carb and it's getting plenty of fuel but there is no spark. I pulled a plug and tried turning it over and there was no spark in it. The only thing I can assume is that something is wrong with the coil or distributor. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I would say coil.. I had that happen to me before except I was at a boat ramp waiting to back my boat over and cut the truck off to undo the straps.. When I tried to start it again the coil quit with no warning at all..

    If not the coil it could also be a wire maybe that lost contact..

    Good thinking :waytogo: I have had that happen before too..

    It could also be the pick up coil on the distributor.. I had a buddy with a van that quit the same way with no warning signs..

    There is a way to test the coil with a multi-meter to find out if it is any good but I can't remember exactly how to do it..
