Was the engine set to 0 tdc on the intake stroke before installing the dist. Recheck your firing order. Set the points or dwell in the distriber.

COULD BE MR. IGNITION MODULE!

HERE'S HOW YOU FIND OUT

THIS THING IS GONNA HAVE 2 CONNECTORS ON IT--BOTH ARE THE SAME STYLE

SORTA CLEAN AROUND THE JOINTS

DON'T EVEN THINK OF USING A SCREWDRIVER, TO GET THESE APART!

GRAB THE WIRES, ON EITHER SIDE OF THE CONNECTOR---GRAB HARD!--THEN PULL APART...........YOU'RE GONNA BREAK THE LOCKING TABS IF YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE!

NEXT GRAB THE PHONE AND CALL THE POPULAR AUTO PARTS STORE, FIND OUT WHO CAN TEST IT......THEN TAKE OFF!

TEST THIS PUPPY 5-8 TIMES, THIS WILL WARM IT UP...IF IT FAILS THE LAST FEW TIMES.....GET ANOTHER!

THEN, BEFORE YOU LEAVE.......RUN THAT ONE THRU THE WRINGER TOO!......DON'T EVEN ASK ME WHY......MY NEW, "BAD" MODULE, MADE ME RIP INTO MY JEEP FOR 2 DAYS, BEFORE I SAW THE LIGHT!

THIS IS POSSIBLY YOUR VILLAIN (BELOW)

IF THIS AIN'T IT.......

COME ON BACK, FOR SOME MORE PUNISHMENT!

Have you checked the coil or the wire that goes from coil to distributor, or the wires that plug into the coil may have got loose, just a thought
