    78 CHEV W 350, intermittant no spark, sometimes jiggling the wires to the distributor will result in it working but now even that is not making a difference.

    Any suggesitons, or a test to see where the problem is?

    Thanks much!

    Get a multi meter and start testing the wires going into the distributer. Check the connectors at the distributer and the connections inside the distributer.
    You'll need to trace each wire to its originating point, disconnect both ends and test for continuity. Make sure all grounds are corrosion free.
