On till you can find out what the wire problem is, splice in a cut off switch to the positive side of the coil.

Does it run normal or just sort of 'chugs'?..Idle badly?


It is fast. It idles great, has big cam, Holley 650, headers, sounds real good.


Sound,s like your igintion switch is bad.It kills the fire to coil.


Thanks was my next stop
