Those 300 sixes were hard to break for sure..  When they go it's most always #1 rod & crank problems as that one is last in the oil 'food-chain'..  **Maybe throw a AC Delco coil on it??  LOL  So the coil's + terminal should have 12V + when the key is on.  The neg - terminal gets powered intermittently via the signals from the distributor & the ignition box..  Usually if a box goes-  It doesn't work at all..  I could dig out the old Chiltons & look if you like..

Those coils usually have a capacitor for radio suppression mounted on them. maybe try unplugging it if its still in the system.

I have found that RockAuto is pretty good for cheap parts that have worked for me. They had a part for my 85 C10 that I had needed. It had been on a search with my local parts guys for 6 months. I saw an ad for RockAuto and tried them. It was in stock and cheaper than my local. I got the new pickup for my 85 C10 from them for $12. Since then I've gotten many clearance sale parts for my old vehicles. Good Luck, Rick

I wonder why they call a 5lb hammer a "Chevy wrench" ?

 

These electronic ignitions can be a real head scratcher when they start acting up. My 97 Ford v-6 kept fowling one plug every 1500 miles. If I ran ethanol in it things would be fine again. Figured it had to be the injector which I bought but never installed. Then after a year that cylinder wouldn't fire at all. Bad coil pack if that's what you call them. Replaced it and no more problems. The ethanol thing still has me baffled.

I spent over 8 hours one day just to find out a 360 Ford wouldn't run on resister AC spark plugs.

Isn't AC a GM company!?  :ah_shoot:

 

I guess my Silverado would not run with Autolites!!  :oh_shucks:

Yep that's true, he already had the plugs and wanted to use them. The next day I went down and bought some Autolites for it.
