I have a 1987 Dodge Raider with the 2.6 litre Carb, engine. It will not fire. I have voltage to the coil.
But im not sure if it is wired correctly.
The distribtor has 2 wires, the black/white wire is connected to the bottom of the resistor ballast, the blue wire to the negative post on the coil.
The wires from the wiring harness are connected as follows: black/white (hot wire when key is on) AND blue wire to bottom of resistor ballast. Red/black wire to top of resistor, black jumper wire from resistor to positive poll on coil.
White/blue wire with red stripe to to positive coil.
Black wire to negative coil.
Blue wire from a diode looking thing mounted on frame to bottom of resistor ballast.
Currently I have voltage on BOTH sides of coil when key is on. More on the positve side than the negative.
The coil specs tested ok, primary and secondary resistance. I have full voltage on both sides of the pickup coil inside the dist.
The ohm resistance on the pickup coil is 1175.
Thanks in advance for advice on repairs or adjustments needed.
have the same problem?
