    If it's a very small spark, sometimes that's normal depending what add on electronics you have.
    If its a big spark, there is a short in the system that needs to be found. If it's a small spark but after being connected it kills the battery, that shows something is staying on that should not be. (also needs to be diagnosed)

SOURCE: I have a 1976 Dodge

unfortunately with conversions the manufarcturer quite often doesn't provide documentation . you should have 4 wires to each light, one ground , one taillight, one brake-signal, and one reverse light, best to find the ground first, then you can locate the others, if you have trailer wiring its white ground, yellow left turn, green right turn and brown taillight

Motor stalls when driving then starts and stalls right away.


Replace the distributor's magnetic pickup located inside the distributor surrounding the distributor shaft, the only other thing thankfully on this ignition system if memory serves me on the f 150 straight six 300 cu inch is the dura spark ignition control box, of course do the obvious tune up parts replacement dist.cap rotor,plug , sparkplugs before spending the $40.00 - $50.00 bucks on the dist.. pick up, you may have a weak a fuel pump check for adequate fuel pressure at carb 7 - 10 lbs.

Battery Drain when parked.


First off, how old is the battery? It is possible it might be stratified and its just no longer holding a charge well. I've had batteries that are 2 or 3 years old and then they just go dead if I don't start them up every day or so. (Some batteries are just made better than others) If the battery is brand new, then check for some possible wiring shorts. Try looking at the engine running in the dark and try moving around the wiring harness to see if by chance you see any sparks or arcs of electricity. Other than that, you might have to have a qualified auto electric mechanic to check it out for any abnormal power drains.
