I discovered that the lead going from the cap to the coil was completely shot and the only thing holding it together was the rubber boot.
Does anyone have a automotive cross over for this engine for plug wires? I tried to get a sierra one from some local shops, non in stock and dont want to lose a weekend! The sierra # I found was 18-8834-1, is this correct? It has the thunderbolt distributor cap.
I guess if it comes down to it, I could trim back the wire and re-attach the terminal.....
