SOURCE: need wireing diagram to change 72 nova over to hei distributor

Hey , just take the positive wire from the coil you are removing and feed it to the + terminal on the HEI dist. cap.the other terminal under there is for your tachometer. If you are mounting a master kill switch in the bumper for drag racing- attatch the kill wire to the tach terminal also.
Thats it you just plug the three wire pigtail from the dist. base(pickup) to the cap and you are off.
Remember firing order is 18436572 in a clockwise direction. to find #1 remove #1 plug and have someone"bump" the engine over while holding your finger over the hole-carefull. then line up the slotted mark on the crank pulley with the big notch on the timing indicator. Good luck

This sounds like a weak battery or corrosion on the battery cable connections. The sound you hear is the relay and not the cylinoid.

My 1991 gmc seirra wont start i hear the starter but not the silinoid kicking in

If you can hear the starter then the solenoid is working as it has to work for the starter to make a noise.

How do I reset the computer in a 1997 Chevy Monte Carlo? The electrical has been acting "strangely" the last month, and then suddenly refused to start. The battery still lights up the car. Since it...

You can reset the computer by disconnecting the battery terminals from the battery and touching them together for 60 seconds. This probably won't fix your problem.

Is the 'weird noise' the normal noise you hear when you crank a car over? If so, that's the starter. If you don't hear it, you have a starter issue. You may want to try holding the brake, turning the key on to the first click, pulling the shifter into neutral, and trying. Sometimes this works and indicates a failing park/neutral switch. If not that, put car back into park. Have someone gently tap the starter with a hammer while you crank the engine. Sometimes this will jar a dead starter into motion. In that case, change the starter.

Ring back with more details if you need.

Military here and working on a foreign car and not a hummer haha. have a 1998 montero sport. bad starter, replaced and now can arc silinoid to fire starter which would only spark before i replaced but will...

Check the condition of the power and ground cables, Bypass the cables with a set of jumper cables, connect the NEG post to the engine with the black cable, and POS to the Starter Solenoid with the red cable. then try it if it starts the cables are bad or poorly connected.

check the battery voltage in stand by and cranking, try jump starting the truck. if the truck will start with a jump the battery could be bad.
If the starter solenoid is separate from the starter then it is possible the solenoid is bad.

Hope this is of some help.

My daughtrs 2001 Chevy s10 has an itermitant starting problem.

quick way to tell... next time it won't crank and just clicks... hit it gently with a hammer as you have someone attempt to start it... if all of a sudden it cranks.... it's the starter... replace it before it quites completely.

1996 Ford Explorer won't turn over.

fuel pump will not prevent engine from turnning over. the click you are hearing is the starter silinoid. you have one or more of the following: dead battery corroded battery terminals bad silinoid (or connections at silinoid) bad connections at starter bad starter. if all connections are tight and clean then get some one to turn key to the start position and you check with a test light or volt meter to see if there is 12 volts at the terminals on the silinoid if yes then check the terminal at starter. if all connections are clean what ever piece the voltage stops at is your problem if it goes all the way to the starter but starter will not turn then you need a starter.
Be careful when checking any and all of this dont get any thing you want to keep close to the parts of vehicle that move when running

first is the truck automatic? or manual transmission, this information is important to know because the neutral switch on the automatic plays an important place on the starter circuit, and on the manual trans, the clutch switch does the same, also make sure you have not aftermarket alarm on the truck because that will interfer with starter cicuit, and to test the ign switch just test every wire close to the swtch and you suposed to get power at least on one cable while trying to crank it,
