Sorry, but I can't see what you wrote under the picture. Great truck! I have a 78 just like it in storage all redone. Some day I hope to drive it, but with kids.
Regardless, I think you are refering to the ignition module. If that shuts down, so does the engine. As far as the conversion, everything had to be changed so my first question is, are you getting a quality part? Many of the parts we buy today come from China and don't hold up.
As far as the starters, have a helper turn the key to the start position while you check the voltage to the smaller wire on the starter. You should be getting 12+ volts. LEt me know what you find with that. Finally, if that is fine and the starter sounds normal when it cranks the engine, I have to ask if you have done anything to increase compression that would place a greater strain on the starter and are all grounds clean and tight?
