1969 Firebird wont fire

08/02/2023 10:37
I have a 1969 Firebird with 400 ci engine and HEI distributor. It's getting fuel but no spark, I pulled the plug to check and no spark. I drove it to the local gas station and it started fine, then home and it hasnt fired since. if anyone has suggestions where to start looking I would appreciate it.

HEI needs a 12 volt supply when the key is in "run" or "start". Check that. IF you have 12 volts, and assuming the distributor is turning with the engine, you've got something bad in the distributor.... either bad cap/rotor, bad pickup coil, bad module.
