Good point ! I sure will check that out.
I changed to a new distributor with metal gear about a year ago.
Thank you Kneale.

It literally felt like i'd turn the ignition on and off while cruising along or at any rate of acceleration really. To me, right now, it seems like a no spark issue...i hit the rev limiter and something happened :-/
