SV: [T3] Installed Compufire - Still Won't Start

Have you checked the head temp sensor wire? It may have come loose or been
broken somewhere when you fiddled with the distributor.

In this case I need someone a bit more experiance than my 12 year old sister
to turn the key and such.  Thus I have to wait until later tonight.

It is a 73 and it has been raining hard here lately.  But the hose (I am
assuming you are talking about the one that comes out the side of the gas
filler area) is ok, the rubber boot that surround the filler area is torn
and falling off.  Can this be a source of water?  The cap was on tight.
(Could that have also been causeing the popping/backfiring that I was
experianceing before it completely died on me?)

That sound would be a faint faint faint buzzing and then a second relay
click right?  If so I have them both.

In response to Greg: Yes my car had been experiancing problems, but has been
running very nicely for about a month now.
