|1978 dodge tioga 440 not starting||mike||10-18-11|
|I have a 1978 tioga with a 440 engine that has quit running. It was running pretty good but needed the carburetor rebuilt so off to the parts store I went. On the way back it started running like it was getting flooded with gas and then backfired with the sound of a cannon out the exhaust and then stopped running. It is getting no fire at the spark plugs now. Could the backfire have caused some damage to the distributor? Not very good with things like that but will try to fix if someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks Mike|

|You need to check:|
Any spark from coil checked at the coil not the coil wire: NO then check power to coil and one side of the coil should flash your test light while cranking engine
If yes then coil wire, cap, rotor are suspect.
If no power to coil check balast resister first it will be a small cerammic item with two or for terminals. It reduces power to the ignition while running.
Then check ignition box.
