Well we tried 2 different times to fire the Ol Hotrod and the first attempt did not work so we went back in and re-adjusted(checked) valves they were good. And the second attempt was worse because when it BACKFIRED it broke the distributor..So Friday we will have a new $800 Mallory Distributor in it and then try again...


First Attempt

its not from back firing when they break, it is actually the engine stopping rotation and going backwards that breaks them. the engine will either stop suddenly or turn back about one revolution and it will snap em. i have seen it happen twice but only with and msd and a mallory dist not stock ones. sorry im tired and half drunk

No I was just hustling to make sure my pops was OK. Because it could have been a tranny that busted and guys have broken ankles from them before..I was just hustling to check on him..No I have done it enuff I am not scared, but I respect the power and wildness of the sport.
