TRUCK WAS RUNNING THEN SPUTTERED AND SHUT OFF NOW WONT START

1991 Dodge Ram • 130,000 miles

Had truck running moved it then started to sputter, gave it some gas and she shut off. Tried to start it again and wouldnt fire. Has spark and is getting fuel, started back up but ran rough for 10 seconds and killed then wouldnt fire again. Also is melting the insulation on ground wire that runds from head to fire wall, I went through and changed out the battery, coil, pick up coil, cap, rotor, wires, plugs still nothin and still gets that ground hot! I am stumped as to what its deal is. Ran perfect until today in the snow when I needed it.

Best double check the electrical wiring-that ground wire is not suppose to be getting hot-something is shorting out to ground
