Well I just tried disconnecting the tach. It still cranks slow and doesn't want to fire.

Is the distributor overadvanced? Was the noise the cooling fan breaking apart and not cooling the oil and heads?

Throw the wife out, perhaps that solves it Wink

But serious, are your spark-plug wires okay and connected correctly?

How about a dead charging system? Once the battery is depleted, the engine will die. If you have a voltmeter, check your battery voltage. Aside from the noise you heard, that would also explain the way the engine quit (became unresponsive).

There's my guess anyway. Hope you find it!

Battery voltage is fine and it ran good for 60 miles after getting rebuilt and full flowed. I'm bringing it back to Daryll on the 28th, so we shall soon see what it was.

Reach in and try to turn it if it broke completely around the pulley it may spin by hand. You can alway take it out and take a peek. Any time BS like that happened to me, I had to tear it down right away and find out what went wrong.

I'm working nighshift right now with 5 days on and 1 day off. I don't have time to do much of anything. I'm really curious what went wrong also.

Does the oil smell burnt? A Monster Energy drink and in 15 minutes you'll have that fan off.

You want me to take the fan belt pulley off the alternator and then reach in and see if it spins? If so I think I can handle that.

Sorry. Leave the belt on if the car and see if the fan in the housing is broken off its mount.

Just checked the fan. It seems fine. Spins ok and I can't feel any broken stuff.
