Re: Re-Cap, Coil voltage missfiring. by Sam Watson
Post New Message Ralph, follow Joe's advice re: running an alternate ground. Also check the air gap between the distrib. reluctor teeth, (all 8 of them), and the pick-up coil to see if you have disrib. bushing wear, or you can just try wiggling the top of the shaft side to side. Since the disrib. coil pick-up mounting plate doesn't rotate, put rather pivots, bushing wear is critical. Also make sure the ignition module is WELL grounded, run a jumper wire all the way back to the battery's ground post if need be. Close the plug gaps down to.030"---the only nonresister plugs available are the ones the racers use and they are abt $8 per. Install the additional ballast resister and fire up the engine. Check the voltage at the battery with the engine running at abt 1,000 RPM---checking for alt output--- should be 13.8 Min to around 14.2-14.5. With engine still at 1,000 RPM, check voltage at coil + terminal, should be abt 10.5-11 volts. Come back with what you find.
