Been a long time since I posted here but if you will remember back a few months ago I finished restoring this truck and have been leisure driving it around close and spends most of its time parking in shed. The other evening i decided to start it and drive it a few miles. It started easily and I let it set and idle about 3 or 4 minutes before the drive and when I was getting ready to crawl in it just died like you had turned the key off. I assumed it was just being spastic. Crawled in and cranked the starter and it wouldn't fire a single lick. Choked it for a second and wouldn't start. I have no fire at the distributor. NOTE: I converted this over to 12V neg. ground if that makes any difference. Can someone give me check pointers so I'm not scratching my head bare.
