Last week, I had a wire come loose and short out the wires for the gauge lights and tach halfway through the feature race. I finished the race and loaded it on the trailer. I just finished rewiring it and it won't stay cranked. It will run for about 5-10 sec and then it will die. I'm running a HEI coil and dist. and a msd box. Could my coil be bad?

Check every ground, and I mean every one. You could have a short to ground, also.

If you havent tried yet unhook the tach sometimes the tach can cause you problems when you have a short like that......Towman
