    Hello,
    Well I just got home and went to start the k5 it was a no go. It's getting fuel, but the engines seems like it's not getting spark. The truck has been sitting for a good week and it's cold here in maine.
    What could it be? I am going to do somw work on it in the morning to see if I could pin point the problem. The truck started up good before i went off to work in NH.
    Thanks
    Adam

    Same thing happened to me, it ended up being the distributor, replaced it and it was all good.

    Hello,
    Well since I am installing a new MSD on the truck I will change the plug wires, spark plugs, cap and rotor.
    Thanks
