Continue-Coil Voltage/missfiring by Ralph
Post New Message Continuation from posts of 5th Aug.
Sam, Joe et al, Ignition switch was not the problem. Engine is still missfiring and I am getting intermittent HT shocks thru the ignition key, carb and van body. Have run 10 gauge copper wire from van body and engine block direct to the battery -ve terminal. It is clamped with bolts to bare metal that has been sanded so grounds are good confirmed by ohmeter and voltage readings.
Voltages with ignition switch in run position, coil +ve 8V, -ve 1.5V. Battery, 12V. Resistor ends 5 ohm 12v & 12v, 1 ohm 12v & 8.5v.
Voltages with engine running, coil +ve 10v, -ve 3.5v. Battery 14V. Resistor ends 5 ohm 13.5V & 13.5V, 1 ohm 13.5V & 10V.
In all cases the voltage readings are steady. Tester is 20,000 ohm/volt.
Distributer is almost new with no play in the shaft.
ECU is well grounded to the van and battery -ve terminal.
Info. only there is no starting bypass wire at the ballast resistor. Can anyone come up with a scenario that could cause the shocks and missfiring. Could it be the battery for instance? Thanking you all in anticipation, Ralph.
