things done so far -
new brakes all around,
new timing belts
new NGK plugs
new dist. cap
new plug wires
new fuel filter
changed out coil bracket (bad ignition amp)
swapped out fuel tank
swapped fuel pump, but going back to original one as the new/used one doesnt work...
car acts like it has a major short somewhere - turn key, get a loud click, then power dies completely. power resets itself after several minutes with key turned off. checked all grounds, battery connections, fuses and fuseable links under hood - where do we look next??????????????????

try changing your starter. check your fuses under the dash for a burnt fuse, that might tell you what area the problem's in if not the starter. check the fusible links under next to the coolant overflow bottle too.
double check the coil wiring, etc too.

I think the noise is normal when you start your car, you just don't notice it with the other noises when the car actually starts. I think your battery is coming back to life after a few minutes and things will work again.

Thanks for the replys
Forgot to add that cables have been changed.
Have not had time to try the things here yet.
Votage on battery reads 12.8...is that enuff to turn
Motor turns freely by hand.
Would a bad fuel pump cause this kind of prob?
Fuel sending unit is not hooked up...that shouldn't
cause this. right???

Cleaned off bat posts and what do you know...cranks right over.
must have been all that time sitting with no cables on while other
work was being done.
Thanks to all that took the time to help us out.
