Thats the problem. The distributor will not stay in mechanical time with the engine. When the distributor is pulled and set to the correct mechanical timeing, the engine runs for a short period of time then quits because the distributor has moved out of time.
I will check the pin that holds the gear on the distributor, just to be sure. I didn't think to check that, but I think the repair shop should have checked it since that is what they do for a living. Since the distributor is not in the engine right now I can check the shear pin in the morning.
I will rely back tomorrow night.
Any other ideas or suggestions?
