Hi, i have an 85 chevy, 350, pretty stock. last week my rig wouldnt start. the wires in the pickup were broken off. so, i changed the distributor to an old one my brother had laying around. i put it in, plugged the wires in, and started it up. it ran perfect, except for one minor detail. it was hard to start. it sounded like the starter would hang up for a split second, and then the truck would start up. i never got a chance to get a timing light on it. i assumed (big mistake) that the starter was no good, so, i changed it. Same problem. okay, i then decided that maybe that old distributor was no good, so i bought a new one. well ps, that didnt do the trick either. i got the truck to start and i would retard it, same condition, then i advanced it, still same thing. what am i missing here?
