Changed from points to electronic distributor. Made the necessary marks for reinstallation before removing old distributor. Found TDC. Installed news Pertronix Distributor. Engine cranked two rotations and abruptly stopped. Starter, battery, solenoid and wiring is all new. Engine will still crank but after 2-3 rotations stops .

Open to suggestions.

Stops as in bogs down or stops like you released the key?

Do you know the battery voltage while cranking? You said it was new, but there's a reason there's a warranty on them.

I found a "troubleshooting guide" for Pertronix Australia, should still apply, not as good as I'd like, but it's a start.
