Just installed Mallory HEI in my '68 Chevelle....when adjusting timing today, I touched the screws on top of HEI and recieved quite a shock, Is this normal? If not, what's wrong?

if your hand touches both he coil wire and a plug wire you may recive a shock b/e you are acting as a conductor for the voltage...the insulartes work well but not that well per se....anyhow if you the plug wires are down all the way take the cap off and look for a wire that may be shorting to the screws
