He has been answering your emails better than mine. Thank you for following up with him. I’m still waiting on the replacement pickup that they are supposed to be sending. As soon as that gets here I’ll wire it in according to the directions you were able to get.

Great news. I finally got the replacement distributor in. I have installed it and this time wired it correctly with red to coil positive, brown to coil negative and black to chassis ground. It fired right up and after fine tuning the timing the truck is running like a charm. Thank you to all who commented and helped me figure out my mistake and find the solution.
