Thanks to everyone reading this post. With 95 combined years of
experience gathered around the hood, neither my father, my uncle or I
could figure out this issue.
We pulled the 350 tranny to replace it with a TCI Streetfighter tranny
and converter.With the tranny out and the engine stabilized by a jack,
we tried to fire the engine. It started, ran very rough, and then died
after 3-4 seconds. The Camaro would not start again. Then we started
testing things. Checked for spark at the plugs, no spark. Checked for
spark from the coil wire, nothing. Replaced coil, cap and rotor since
they were a little old. The Camaro still wouldn't fire. The starter
turns the engine, but there is no spark at the coil, even after
replacing with a new one.
Prior to pulling the tranny, the engine ran strong. It is a stock 307
with a points distributor. Never had any problems with it.
Anybody have any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
