Default can somebody plz help me...

as everybody knows I've been having trouble with my car for the past week and a 1/2 thought i had it fixed last night, so my dad drove it to work 2day( a 60 mi. round trip) it done fine going to work and then done fine on the way home until he pulled in the driveway and it shut off he crunk it back up and I drove it to the store(maybe a mile there and back) and it shut off twice at the store. After I got home it shut off again and I messed with the carb. so less fuel would go in cause that's what my dad thought it was. it turns out that wasn't it so we narrowed it down to the coil and it has fire at the connection but not at the coil changed coils and it's still doing it have no idea what it could be if any one thinks they know what it is my number is (229)-921-6289

Maybe you got a bad coil? I know it sounds crazy but try another one?
Our 65 did the same thing and it ended up being the coil.

hey bro, this sounds like the problem i had with my car, try replacing the dizzy, or the TFI module if you dont have the funds, i did the latter, and it didnt fix it, because it was something internal, new dizzy fixed it

yea crunk I'ma redneck but since I couldn't figure out what was wrong with it i just started tracing wires and found that the red wire for the coil had been cut from a connector to run my fan so I'm getting the mallory 6a kit for my car $450 but it won't be till next week

Instead of getting the mallory ignition I'm thinkin about getting a car just like mjr's 92. It's a 4 cyl 5 sp. for $500 the only thing that's wrong with it is it's sticks sometimes in 5th gear what would yall do? fix my car or get the 92 and make it my dd until I can save some money to fix my car with MSD
