THis might be a dumb question, but can a distributor go bad? I have been having a trouble for some time, and am ready to throw my truck and myself into a wood chipper. I can get it running, and get it running smooth by vacumm gauge. WHen it gets warm, it starts popping and misfiring. If i try to restart it, it wont, and cant turn it to any position to restart it. I thought my coil might be bad, but changed coils and it didnt help. Its a Mallory Unilite if that makes a difference. Im a shade tree mechanic at best, but have never had this much trouble! Thanks!
