    Default 1975 chevy 3/4 ton 2x4 with 1986 350... stall troubleshoot..

    Hi everyone,
    I have a 75 chevy with a 350 out of a 86 GMC (if it makes any difference). The other day i drove it until the truck was warmed up, shut it off and started it within 5 minutes and went again. When coming to a stop sign it stalled out on me and wouldnt start. Drained the battery trying to start it. I pulled it home which was a mile away and it still wouldnnt start with the battery charger, just turned over and over. Around 5 or 6 hrs later i went to start it and it fired right up. So my question is obviously what made it stall out? please help! Thanks!!

    There is an ignition module under the distributor cap that is notorious for producing issues like you described. I can't recall its proper name at the moment, but that would be the first place I'd look.
