do you have power going to distributor and coil

I will have to check that when the truck turns over i can hear a snapping sound coming from the distributor like an electric snap i messed with it 6 months ago when i changed the coil and points and condenser and after kept turning over it fired for 2 seconds then died and that was it im wondering if it might be a ground problem


could be make sure you have 2 body grounds motor to body and one to battery from body then main ground to engine
