It all happened when I snapped 2 of the 3 bolts on the dizzy cap when trying to replace. I marked the position of the dizzy / removed. My father took the dizzy into work to get the cap bolts tapped out. One was sucessful the other broke the entire bolt thread piece (ear or whatever you call it).
Mounted the cap using 2 bolts and put back on the car to make sure in working order. Fired up nicely.

Removed the cap and for the 3rd bolt use some jbweld type stuff just to hold the bolt in place.

Let dry over night and went to reinstall ---> car will not start

I took the distributor off 3 different times and tried rotating the collar 180 degrees. Each time I could not get the dizzy to mount in flush when turned the 180 degrees. Only goes in one way. I have the timing mark lined up just as I did yesterday when testing it out. I checked the wiring for the plugs and they are correct.

What to do now?
