Last night i started it up and it ran for about 30 secs then went dead. There was a fuel leak in the fuel pump outlet i fixed that. This morning it wont do anything, just turns over without any sign of starting, i pulled the #3 plug to make sure it was getting spark, and now i dont know what to do.

MSD Pro billet distributor
MSD Blaster 2 coil
MSD 6AL box
Accel Extreme 9000 wires

any ideas?

When I have these problems, I go back to the basics.

You need three things present in order to get an engine to run....fuel...compression...and correct ignition timing/spark.

I ususally pick the one that seems to be the most likely culprit and start there and work my way down the list.

Good luck!

When you pulled #3 did you see sparks or not?
