    Grounds are clean and solid? A load on the system with a poor ground can cause this sort of problem as the rest of the stuff would be drawing ground input and could cause a malfunction..

    Got the strap from the battery post to motor mount, added one going to the starter bolt, has a couple of others going from post to chassis

    What about the ground connection for the ignition system?

    The ICM is bolted to the strut tower and the ground for it is paired up with one coming from the battery post

    The ground for the ICM is connected directly to the negative battery terminal?

    Pretty much. The ground comes out of the ICM, goes 3" to a ring terminal and is bolted to the strut tower. A ground comes over from the battery, terminates in a ring terminal, and is on the same bolt.

    pic of said ground? there are others?

    I do not think there is a grounding problem. The car started right up when we were there the other week with a working dizzy. He just needed his own distributor which he now has and has been proven to work on Joe's truck. I do not know what is up now. Got to think it is in the wiring between the dizzy, ICM and coil but we tested it before and it all worked. Its either gremlins or shenanigans.

    IS there anything connected to terminal 1 on the coil during this testing? other than the trigger wire from the ICU?

    feh, don't have any large enough crimp connectors to fix the alternator wiring :\ and, I'm not sure where the 2 + leads coming from the alt actually end up at

    I think the hall sensor is finicky, don't think it wanted to work properly when the cap was not pushing the connector down. I also re-wired every bit of the ignition harness
