I replaced distributors and it ran then I parked it and tried to start it no spark. I pulled the main and satored and it started only to shutdown again. I have power at the black and yellow wire going into the distributor, but no spark to plugs.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hey BEARSAUTO1026

Im wondering if the timing belt is in tact, can you remove the oil filler cap and cranks the engine over to see if the camshaft is rotating?

Please let me know

Best, Ken

Is it a new or used distributor? If it was used do you see rust colored dust inside?

I found this wiring diagram so you can do some testing.

Blk/yel should have power with the ignition on, also disconnect the blue wire and try it in case the tach is shorted out causing the problem.

Let me know,

Best, Ken
