Suspected fouled distributor
I have a 70, 396BB. Recently, I was driving and all of a sudden I lost power, I pulled over, opened the hood to find the battery was out of its tray, it pulled out the "hotwire" that goes to the distributor. I reconnected everything and now it completely runs like crap. It runs fine at idle but under any power (in gear) it just shutters like something is fouled. I changed plugs, wires, checked timing all that. The distributor is a HEI with internal coil. Did I toast the distributor? There isnt a way I can check contact points without totally taking out the entire thing is there? I took of the cap to see what is under there but im to nervous to go further. Suggestions anyone????? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!
