Ok i just bought a DuI distribler. Ok i went to church and stoped at someones house and it wouldn't start had to get a jump. About 30mins later it start to back fire ect.. and crap. I thought that my engine was going to blow up. Also my light was dim. Once i turned my lights off it runed fine. What i am guessing is that i need a bigger alt. for the car. The Distribler is sucking to much dang power. If i would turn the lights on it would back fire and have no power so i kept the lights off.

I'd go ahead and have my complete charging system tested. Sounds like you're alternator is going south and not putting out enough to power the distributor and charge the battery at the same time.
