smoking distributor

  1. Electronic Distributor changeover - Smoking distributor, not starting.

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Bought the centerline electronic distributor ID405 and the bosch blue coil for my 78 Alfa Spider and wired it up right but when I attempted to start there was a clicking/ticking sound coming from distributor and it started smoking. The spark plug wires are correct and the coil is wired correctly...
