I am so thoroughly bummed now. The only thing that makes me feel better is that it is still down. I think its the tumblers in the ignition, which is over $350 used.

Thank you for the pics.

Got home an hour ago. My eyes feel like they are cooked over easy. What a wacky trip. The only time I picked up the camera was on Sunday. Anyone catch a pic of you know who on the trailer? :banghead:

Cool Jeff. The last thing we did on it Saturday was wrap tape on the module power lead where the insulation was cut right where it comes out of the distributor base. When we got to Bob's, Ralph ran me to the Oriellys and I bought 2 more modules. She started fine and drove off the trailer. Yesterday, we hit the road at 6:15 and discovered she had piss poor power on the hill climbs and would back fire like the 4th of July on down shift. We chewed nails until Globe and started working on it again under some shade at the gas station. Once we wore out our welcome there we moved up the road to a print shop and asked the owner if we could borrow some shade. He came out and looked at what we were doing. He has an old FJ40 sitting there with a Cheby tree fifty. I asked him if it has HEI, no an MSD system. During that stop we burned out another module. Turns out Jerry had a new Skip White HEI on his J20 that had never been fired. He is out of town but invited us to take it so we could get home. This so saved our BACON! Many thanks to Jerry! :-bd

I was glad Flint called me last night to let me know they got home OK. I am 2000 mi from home and I
offer what I could. I know with there BABY running better they had a happier ride home. :D
Oh, thanks for the pictures. Let see some more :(

Still, the offer was very generous. The initial idea to leave Phoebe and take your 90 GW was very tempting too but ultimately still would have required fixing the problem and getting the 2 Jeeps back to the right homes. Should have some pix up today. :)

Glad you made it back :-bd

So am I to understand that the root cause of the failure was the power wire that feeds the HEI chaffed and lost it's insulation, then grouned out and burn up a module? 4 pin module?

Yes and maybe. The last module to burn out was when we put all the original parts back on in Globe while trouble shooting. That leads me to think the coil is also bad. I spent $175 on parts (5 modules, cap, rotor, coil). After talking to Tad last night, we find that the Skip White web site has life time warranty HEI dizzys for less than $60 and they come with a new gear to boot! Parts is parts no matter who makes them and they will eventually fail. The fail is a Mallory unit that is 4 years old.

hmmm

all my junk runs either 7 pin or 8 pin HEI modules and I keep a stack of junkyard spares in each truck, although I've never had a failure.

After reading this, I will double check my HEI/TBI wiring to ensure no wires are chaffing.

You are running that electric paste on the module right? It helps conduct heat energy out of the module and down into the distributor (on HEI). Some rigs run the module on the fender with strips of aluminum/CPU heat sink/etc. All with paste.

We used lots of Desitin ointment on each one, yep ;) The heat was cooking our brains, not the HEI. :D

No Problem - It WAS the Wire. :D

This is the best deal I can find on a new wiring harness for the module:

Did I miss out on the heat, you know I love the heat. It was between 65 and 70 deg here and I was wearing a jacket. :mrgreen: Will be back in a week to enjoy the heat. :-bd

Trust Ralph to be the one that can't park his rig right in the line up. :roll:
