I feel your pain, it is two darn hot here in the armpit of Texas. You have thrown a lot at this problem. Check the wires carefully with a continuity tester from point A to B. I had a similar instance and it was one of the wires to the coil that had been pinched and was broken internally. It was intermittent. I missed it because it did not show any outward symptoms of being broke. I found it with the tester. It sucked because I traced and tested the majority of the harness before I found it. Double check all wiring you have corrected also. Keep at it, patience and perseverance will win.

Yep, that was some of the first testing we did was continuity of the existing wires, and all tested good, but thinking problem is the ground side of the coil connection or distributor....which is next to trouble shoot.

If you read through much here, we took out the MSD and went back to new ICM, ICM harness, Coil. Also replaced the start switch under the dash, and checked everything front back sideways up down......

We will lick this for sure, as once we can get the engine to run, everything else can move forward with purpose

I saw that you went back to stock. I have not had any luck with the MSD boxes. We had one in a K5 blazer build that gave us nothing but grief. Good you are going through it with a fine tooth comb. you will get it figured out.

I am dying to know if you were able to get your guy to spin up! Were you able to find a dizzy or pickup and try it out?

Not spinning up yet.

Did get another distributor from 78 WideTrac (thanks so much), but temps here 105*+ right now, and just don't feel like I want to work out in it.

When it is 100* at 8 am, just takes the wind out of the sails quick.

Will get back at it one of these weekends again, and post results how that goes.....as we will overcome this issue
