    Battery? Gas? Flux Capacitor?

    More info!

    Do your lights come on?
    Does the starter turn?
    Does the motor turn?
    Did you look to see if you've pinched any wires and blew a few? (Can't think of any that would be nearby)

    sounds like you accidentally disconnected a ground wire.

    Thnx for the quick replies. Turns out I clipped the plastic cap to the center wire from the ditributor where it connects down by the top shock nut.Plugged it back in and viola. I need to replace that center wire though because it no longer snaps on. Do you think I will need to buy the whole set?
