Re: 396 Shuts off Arm Getting Warm???
When it shuts off, pull a plug wire and insert onto a Phillips screwdriver and hold the screwdriver shank about a 1/4 inch from ground, valve cover, etc., and crank it; no spark, either a bad coil, or module inside, or a corroded connection or missing ground strap from the coil to dist body inside the cap, if HEI.
If there is spark, then could be fuel. If engine is running too hot, say above 230°F, then fuel could be evaporating from the bowl(s). Kindda doubtful, but a possibility.
Or a faulty power lead to the dist. If aftermarket or HEI dist, you should not be getting power from the cloth covered wire. You should run a dedicated power lead from the fusebox labeled "IGN".
