Second dist. Still no start
with spark cable connected to the coil contact and spring, spark plug in cable, spark plug body grounded - no spark.
Reading about 10 V DC to ground at coil contact while cranking - V ok - seems low?
Tested continuity on all of the pins on the engine dist. H/a i.E. From car all open i.E. High resistance except black and low resistance on black/yellow. Voltage drops from 12 to 10.5 on black and yellow when cranking. Are these numbers ok?
Could there be a problem with something at the other end of the h/a wires such as a control module, computer etc. That wasn't allowing dist. To spark or short circuit?
Have new rotor but don't think thats the prob.
Tested each cable and spark plug - no spark while cranking.
Bulbs ok - had misplaced one of fuses while checking. Found fuse map on-line and checked everything.
