welcome to the forum. in this kind of scenario, the first step is to make sure its not a coincidence. it usually has something to do with what you just did. check for pinched wires, or missing ground wires that are secured by bolts. then check the basics, fuses and stuff. by erratic spark, what exactly is happening, and what were you using to test. good luck and let us know any more info.
