I have the voltage regulator still. IMG_0102 (3).JPG Got a new distributor and every thing from summit racing. For around a 145.00. Figured the old one was old and needed to put new in to head off problem's. Had to cut in for a few splices and direction's explained it all.

Sorry the picture dose not show the ground strap on the ECU box but have one on it now. That Green wire #6 is a ground wire running through out the car from front to back just for a back up it is grounded to the batterie.

so let it run for the amount of time it takes . that is the best way to find the problem . drive around the block as not to be to far from home . take the d.v.o.m with you
Ok. What does this tell you. When its running I have 12V at the +coil connection. When I doesn't want to start the voltage is 6.8 at the +coil. Cold not running it's still 6.8. I seem to always have voltage at the coil and out of the coil but at times no spark. Distributor? Pick up in the distributer?

Just to say I got a new coil and bought the new distributor and ECU box with all the wiring from summit. The coil was from O Reilley auto parts. the new blast resistor came with it also in the distributor kit. Fallow direction's and not hard to hook up. Non point's distrib. May be this will clear up your problem for around 140 buck's.
