Post zero spark? KLZE
So I was redoing my radiator coolant lines and i happened to spray coolant pretty much everywhere above the tranny. then the car stopped sparking, still turned over and everything. so i assumed my coil shorted so i went out and did the HEI mod. everything is hooked up correctly and now im back to where i started. still no spark. what should be the next thing that i check? any and all help would be greatly apprciated.

Well, if the coil is gone and you did just the HEI, you still need to do the external coil along with the HEI. HEI just replaces the ignitor

What did you use for disty? You put a tower on your stock K8 disty cap, you use a PRD cap or you using a ZE disty?

Try disconnecting the neg. from the battry and depress the brake pedal for 15 secs. I had to do that to reset my ECU. You may of shorted out the system with the coolant

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
