Question about Chevrolet 2500
I have a 1983 GMC Seirra pickup that is blowing the ignition module. I have replaced 5 in the past 6 months. It appears to be blowing the module when the truck is off. I replaced the last one a week ago and started the truck twice immediately after the install. A week later and the truck will not start again. Can you tell me what might be happening with the ignition system? When I installed the module, I made sure the grease was spread evenly accross the back of the module to prevent overheating.
Another person (mountainman1) had this same problem with the HEI he found it to be a bad ground connection at the coil in the cap. When he would replace the module after replacing the cap it would make a new connection for a couple of days then go out again. I do not know if this is your problem but it sounds the same.
