VERY GOOD!

WE'RE GONNA BE USING THE 6 CYLINDER SCALE. JUST THE TACHOMETER FEATURE

I FEEL THE BALLAST RESISTOR WILL MAKE THINGS A LOT BETTER

IF YOU GOT THE DISTRIBUTOR IN CORRECT, WE'LL BE IN BUSINESS

Hey Medic, I'm ready for some more help again!

Here's what I've done since my last post - 1 - Installed a ballast resister and 2 - had my ignition control module tested (checked good) and my ignition coil tested (checked good) Both tests were by the local auto parts store. Since both of those parts tested good I replaced my pick up coil. Cranked my engine and still the same result, engine turns but no spark at all. What else could it be? I have heard one of my engine management relay switches click while I attempt to crank the engine could that be a problem?

Your turn,

kcscj

OK BOSS

I WANNA HEAR IT RUN!!!

JUST TO KEEP BOTH OF US MOTIVATED

WE'RE GONNA TRY THIS

THIS IS JUST A TESTLET'S NOT GET CARRIED AWAY!

IF THIS WORKS----WE MAY SORTA HAVE A BETTER IDEA WHERE TO GO LOOKIN'!

1ST THINGS 1ST----CHECK YOUR FUSES!!!!----A BAD DISTRIBUTOR PICK UP---BROKEN WIRES---A BAD IGNITION MODULE (WHATEVER YOU HAVE) COULD PLAY IN

EVEN MOVE WIRES AROUND WHILE SOMEONE ELSE TRIES TO START IT---LOOK FOR MELTED WIRES ON THE BOTTOM SIDE OF THE WIRE LOOMS---ESPECIALLY WHERE THEY RUN ACROSS THE HEAD OR NEAR THE EXHAUST OR EXHAUST MANIFOLD

EZ SET UP!

SORTA 1950s GRAND THEFT AUTO---SORTA BEFORE LOCKING STEERING (AND I'MMA '63 MODEL)

TWO WAYS TO DO THIS----PICK YOUR POISON

1) THE 1ST WAY (PICs 1 AND 2) THIS BYPASSES EVERYTHING IGNITION----BAD THING IS THE IGNITION STUFF IS STILL CONNECTED TO IT ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE IGNITION SWITCH

POSITIVE BATTERY TO POSITIVE COIL!!!

SO................. IF THERE IS A SHORT (AND YOU INTRODUCE UN-PROTECTED POWER) THINGS "COULD GO BAD" WITH WIRING.

YOU CAN SEE I USED A 15 AMP FUSE RIGGED W/ 2 FEMALE SPADE CONNECTORSEVEN DOING THIS, THE PROBLEM ALONG THE WAY, BACK TOWARDS THE IGN SWITCH MAY PREVENT IT FROM BUSTING OFF AND RUNNING

2) THIS IS ANOTHER WAY TO DO IT---ELIMINATES THE WIRE BACK TO THE KEY COMPLETELY----SET UP IS A BIT MORE COMPLICATED----IT'S STILL POSITIVE BATTERY TO POSITIVE COIL----BUT IF SOMETHING WAS GROUNDED BACK TOWARDS THE KEY............THIS COMPLETELY ELIMINATES IT, FOR THIS TEST

SEE PIC 4

IF YOU HAVE THE RIGHT COIL----DOING THIS ONLY TEMPORARILY ---"WITHOUT" ---A RESISTOR OR BALLAST RESISTOR WILL HURT NOTHING----IT SHOULD AT LEAST SPIT, SPUTTER, OR COUGH.....HOPEFULLY RUN!THIS WILL LET US KNOW IT'S GETTING IGNITION

IF YOU WILL REVIEW THIS PIC (3) AT THE TOP"I" FEEDS IT FULL 12 VOLTS AT START UP.......SO WE ARE GOOD FOR A FEW MINUTES OF RUNNING

HERE'S THINGS TO REMEMBER!!!

DO THIS OUTSIDE, AWAY FROM STUFF

HAVE A WRENCH READY AND PRACTICE FAST REMOVAL OF EITHER BATTERY CABLE OR SOME HEAVY SHEARS TO CUT ONE!

A CUT OFF SWITCH, EVEN A CHEAP ONE LIKE THIS, WILL ALWAYS BE YOUR FRIEND!

EVERY HAD THE SOLENOID "STICK"---THE ENGINE TURNING OVER AND OVER AND OVER, LIKE FOREVER.........WHILE YOU WERE HELPLESS TO STOP IT????

A GOOD INVESTMENT

....DOUBLES FOR ANTI-THEFT--FAST TO KILL, WHEN WORKING ON ANY ELECTRICAL STUFF

HAVE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER HANDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...............YES, I'M TRYING TO SCARE YOU!!!

YOU KNOW THE DEAL!!!

ANY THOUGHTS?????

LET'S POUR A TEASPOONFUL OF GAS DOWN THE CARB, SECONDS BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT TO START IT THE GRAND THEFT WAY. THIS WILL INSURE THAT GAS WAS PRESENT DURING THE TEST

I LOOKED AT YOUR ENGINE PIC AGAIN

WHAT IS THAT YELLER SNAKE THAT RUNS CROSS WAYS OVER THE VALVE COVER AND IN FRONT OF THE PCV VALVE?

That yellow snake running across my valve cover is my vacuum advance line from my distributor.

I'm not sure what happened with some of the pics from your last post, but I can not view pic #3 and pic #4.

When I get everything prepared to give my coil straight juice from the positive terminal, do I need to remove my ballast resistor from the wiring to prevent any damage from back current?

YOU CAN TAKE IT LOOSE----ONE SIDE IS FINE

THEY ARE REMODELING THE SITE----HOPEFULLY EVERYTHING WILL BE STRAIGHT SOON

LINKS DO NOT WORK----SO COPY AND PASTE THEM TO A NEW TAB !

I CANNOT POST PICS---OR SEND A PRIVATE MESSAGE RIGHT NOW. BEAR WITH ME.I'LL DO WHAT I CAN TILL THINGS ARE ON TRACK AGAIN

THIS MAY AID YOU.

DO A GOOGLE SEARCH.1ST TWO KEY WORDS.2CARPROS. CJ MEDEVAC

YOU CAN STOP THERE OR INCLUDE. GRAND THEFT AUTO. OR ANY THING ELSE YOU WANT. Xbleed. Xradiator. Tough love. Volcano. Etc

EVEN COMBINATIONS WILL TAKE ME TO A SPECIFIC POST LIKE : 2CARPROS CJ MEDEVAC A124 NEON PROMO THIS ONE AND 2CARPROS CJ MEDEVAC TOUGH LOVE TAHOE, I USE QUITE A BIT!

I PURPOSELY MAKE UP WORDS, OR USE WORDS NEVER USED IN THE AUTO INDUSTRY. SO I CAN QUICKLY FIND (AND COPY) AND/ OR LINK YA'LL TO A POST. WHY WRITE ALL OF THAT CRAP AGAIN !

WHICHEVER YOU DO, SELECT "IMAGES" AT THE TOP

I'LL SLING OUT A BUNCH. MINE AND THE ONES POSTED BY THE QUESTIONEER

THEN YOU CAN SELECT "ORIGINAL IMAGE" OR THE "POST IT WAS IN"

YOU MAY FIND THE MISSING PICS THIS WAY. ON ANOTHER QUESTION

. SOME OF MY "SAME" PICS, HAVE BEEN MODIFIED TO SUIT THE QUESTION I WAS ANSWERING. SO BE AWARE

I TRY TO "PERSONALIZE" AND "ATTACK" THINGS IN DIFFERENT WAYS. SOME OF THIS INFO, MAY NOT BE FOR YOU. YET. OR AT ALL!

LEMME KNOW HOW THAT WORKS!

I'M STILL HANGING WITH YOU.I APPRECIATE THE CONFIDENCE YOU HAVE IN ME

NOW. LET'S HEAR IT FIRE UP, SO WE CAN NARROW THIS DOWN
