1983 pickup died while setting at a light.
There is no spark. I pulled a plug and checked for compression and found it. So I assume the timing belt is still there. Found the voltage regulator to be out of range on its resistive readings and replaced it. Distributor cap had a worn point and the rotor looked pretty rough so I replaced those also. The coil tested ok. Cables and plugs look ok. The only part I have left is the igniter. At $300 I'm trying to try anything else I might have missed. Considering the voltage regulator was shot is it possible the igniter did it, or the regulator damaged the igniter? Any ideas are welcome.
