My 1976 Chevy El Camino 350 stalled and will not start. Cranking is good, fuel is good. I replaced the: Ignition Control Module, Rotor, Ignition Coil and Distributor Cap. The plugs and wires are good. What else can I try?

Do you
have the same problem?

Do you have a good strong spark at the plug end of the wires?

Is the distributor turning? Did you check for spark at the plugs?

There's a good chance that has a bad pick up coil in the distributor. Make sure you have power supply to both the coil and ignition module.
