Make sure that all sensor wires are connected tightly!

 Okay I may be an idiot here, I have a no start condition And I wanted to
get some feedback.

I have two issues that I am not sure are related. I changed my radiator and
afterwords I thought it was running funny, eratic idle, it stalled while
warming up, and while waiting at a stop light it really loaded up and would
not rev up and blew some black smoke, then cleared up and ran fine.

 I had been having a missfire so I repalced the Plugs, Plug wires, Cap and
rotor, while stuggleing with the cap I broke the tab off the electrical
connection with 3 wires that connects into the distributor next to the rear
Distributor cap clamp. It still seems pretty solid in there and I tried to
secure it with zip ties. Any way it will not start there is a strong spark
form the coil and a weaker spark from the plugs. It turns over but
doesn't seem to want to start and kind of clunks to a stop if it turns over
too  many times.
