Sounds like your timimg is off. Check that if that dosent work check the pig tail on the distibutor. It may have wires that are stretched and loise contact when warm. That Second 1 is more of a gm problem but it is possible.

May also be a starter issue as well.

THANKS FOR YOUR ANSWERS. I THINK IT IS POSSIBLY THE TIMING ALSO. IT WILL TURN OVER JUST FINE BUT WILL NOT START. I WILL KEEP PLAYING WITH THE TIMING AND TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THE WIRING. IF THAT DOES NOT WORK I AM GONNA SKIP THIS MALLORY ACROSS THE NEAREST POND.
