ok i noticed that while i was rewiring my car after a recent jamming of my started solenoid and replacing the starter along with half of the wires in my car that powering my hei ignition was a resistor wire for a points ignition. i changed this to the 12 volt source that an hei requires and after timing it turned it over and it started right up without even touching the gas like i normally had to. it did this for a few times and then now it has trouble starting and i have to pump it and hold down the peddle and hope it starts before the battery dies. what could be the problem here?

Either the distributor turned, clamp not tight, weights are stuck, low on fuel, fuel pump not working, or reduced voltage going to the HEI dist.
