i have been on this truck 4 days its a 250 straight new coil madraul man come on tell me brother my tune signals back up lights all work it just cut off still no bspark 82 c10 straight 6 cyclender


Then something went bye bye, you need to check to see if the ignition coil has power in both key on and key in crank position, if that's good then you will have to check foe a trigger signal from the module to the coil, a test light will work for that , just hook one end to a positive and the other to the negative side of the coil, if you get a flashing light when you crank it over your coil went away, if no flashing light the module went away, not uncommon on the cheaper units.

thanks i will get back to you tommrow the coil is new the modral is also

and i have fire going in the stribeter cap the red hot wire i have fire on the two wires going from the coil well 3 one is the ground so i use a test light on the top of the coil put on both lights then try starting it


Two other thing to check if you have no spark, would be the ignition control module, and the pick-up coil in the distributor. On the pick-up coil very gently pull on the two wires and see if there broken or stretchy, stretchy would be a broken wire also. Most common is the ignition control module goes bad. You can have that tested at an auto parts store.


So you have spark to the cap, then there could be a problem with the cap itself, carbon brush, cracked cap, carbon tracking of the spark. Or resistance is too high in the spatk plug wires.

i was driveing down the rd came to a satop light cuts off so i put a new coil and a maudal i put my finger on a screw driver nothing im going to use a test light what do i do to check with a light its a 250 6 cyclender do i pull the wires off the cap are check it buy taking off the top of the coil i look at the cap looks goods to me if i boult a new maydal an coil can the maduasl be gone again?


Here is a simple GM HEI diagram. This should help you with finding the power and grounds plus the pulse wire to the coil.


When you replaced the ignition control module the first time, did you put that little packet of special grease onto the mounting surface? If not then it is possible the module is burnt out again.
