    a wire on my distributor shorted against some metal. it is the wire that you would hook a tach to. it alternates on off. i believe it is brown. it is one of the three that go from teh coil into the distributor on an HEI system. anyhow the truck wont start now. it turns but doesnt start. could the coil or something have gotten fried? what could it be. i need help fast. thanks

    Off the top of my head, the tach I think, is off the coil. Check for burned up fuse link wire that runs to the Batt side of the coil.... HTH

    I say it's either the fusible link, or a creamed HEI module.

    I'm so poor I can't even pay attention [​IMG]

    I'm assuming there is no spark at the plugs... is there power getting to the dist/coil? I'd agree check the fusable link. Definetly could fry the module though. May want to check the coil as well... could of shorted that out

    I did the same thing sort of to my blazer but the truck would start as soon as you released the key. Did it all day the next day and then suddenly acted like there was never a problem. I would check your fusible links. They're about 2 bucks a pop. You'll see a frazzled mangled wire that looks like its been heat shrinked to death.
