    SBC HEI help!!!!!

    The Impala hasn't ran for two months, prior to that it ran well & started first time. Now someone is collecting it on Friday & the pile of shyte won't start at all!

    The spark is weak or none at all. I've changed the plugs & still the same. Any ideas????

    Just took the cap off & the coil pack (I think!) looking underneath has a plug (3 wires) that goes on the right of the circled block and another wire going to one of the two terminals on the left.

    Looking at the photo below, there are only two terminals going to the three terminal block. The centre one isn't there. Should there be a centre terminal? I would have thought so as there is adefinitely a wire going to where it should be.

    For some reason Photobucket are showing my photos as tiny & I can't change them, but you can just about make out the area to the left of the cap.

    First of all it is possible to get those 3 wires around the wrong way worth checking on the cap (red wire on the end term to the b+ term)

    or If you remove the rotor arm, the ign module is situated under it its about 3" long and from memory 2 wires each end and white in colour

    Thanks Vince, looks like I've found it. I ran a wire from the battery to the ignition controlled terminal on the HEI & it started straight away, looks like its the ignition controlled wire thats breaking down.
