Jace...I bet you can't guess what clutch I've been using for the last four years of autocrossing...Keep in mind, all the hard launches, all the hard shifting, and all the relatively aggressive daily driving...and running at RMR, pulling a 15.6 @88mph with a 2.2 60'

I've got a shocker for you...Stock. Yep, a stock clutch. Beck Arnley once and IIRC Luk twice. They didn't wear out, I just swapped them at different times when I had the tranny out, either for the LSD in the first car and then the second, and again when the case cracked.

Unless you plan on attending EVERY Midnight Drag, signifigantly increasing your HP (beyond bolt ons) or attempting 2nd gear burnouts, if you can get a brand name stock clutch for less, I say spend the money somewhere else

HAHA!! I just noticed the note by your location. "25% More Gay Mormons."
I agree with the stock clutch comment.

Does it just click? When you say it won't turn over ... you are saying it won't CRANK at all right? If that's the case, it's something starting related ... not ignition.

Now when you replaced the Distributor, did you replace it with a new or junkyard one? Those things fail ALL the time and I bought a junkyard one only to fail on me a week later. Also, I can't remember if the harness clip is even the same (I should go look) but a '93-94 has different distributor pinouts than a '95+. So if you bought a '95+ disty and put it on your '93 it won't fire.

'93's will work even if the Crank Position Sensor is bad, so it's not that. Can you run your codes and tell us what codes you're getting? If you don't know how to read the codes ... lemme know.

Bill .... does Saturday work? 11am-ish?

Ashton, like Josh said, pull the codes, they will tell you a lot. Most likely in my opinion would be the timming belt slipped (either litterally jumped a couple teeth, or the crank shaft bolt came loose), or CPS is bad or loose, or like Josh said, you have a 2nd bad or wrong disty.
Josh, I have a plumber coming over Saturday morning to help me with the basement bath plumbing. Afternoon or eve would be better.

How about like 2pm or is that still too early? I need to be home by like 5pm. If this Saturday doesn't work, no biggie ... I can just do it another time.
