Guy's n girls we started my new 406 chevy engine for the first time, the engine started just fine but after a few seconds fire flew from the new Pertronix dist [ its the flame thrower]- i cut the engine as quick as i could. Does any one have a clue what went wrong and what my next step should be. What the chance the dist is ruined?
Thanks River

Yeah, good guess about a fuel leak. That would be my suspicion also.-

I checked, i don't think it was fuel, i wonder if it was shipped with some kind oil to prevent rust. I hope to get back and check before the weekend, the few seconds the engine ran has got me excited. Thanks guy's
