Sorry, I was just trying to get the point out there without writing a book. Yes I got fuel and spark, yes it’s damp outside and the truck will not start. What am I looking for when I check the cap and no I don’t think there is a grey module on the distributor.

Hey! Just to let you know, I took the spark plugs out and the gaps on them were all in the .90s, so I regapped them to the Standard .46 and the truck fired right up! Thanks for the input tho! Ps... still puzzling me why it would start one day but not the next. ????

How did you re gap the plugs?
