Default Someday this engine will run right.

Hi, I just put in an electronic ignition from Pertronix. After knocking my head against the wall trying to figure out why this newly rebuilt engine and carb wouldn't run. Tossed the points and condensor for electronic ignition. Started right ran good. Drove it for about an hour, but still had to time it cause it felt off a little. Timed it, tightened the distributor down, and ran great for about a minute and a half then stopped cold. No spark. Is it possible I burned the Pertronix unit for having the key switch on to long? I also had bought a Pertronix "flame thrower" coil. And it was major hot. Put a different coil in, and still no spark. Any suggestions?
