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?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 I did. Hard site to navigate. My ballast reads 1.9 ohms. MyMopar says 1.2. That's why the voltage is so low at my coil. Would that make it die when its hot? Maybe the ohms go up when it gets hot. I also checked the gap on the pick up coil. Says it needs to be .0080. It was almost touching. I reset it and ran it till it got hot and turned it off. It started up 4 more times.so 12 volts goes in to the ballast resistor ans cut in have that is the 6 volts you see . did you watch the video at my mopar on you tube ? you should go there and watch the video if not get a repair manual and follow the trouble shoot guide.
look at Rev-N-Nator it might be better than china crap . there is another i have seen cant find it on b-body only forum. do your research on what to buy and warranty as n.a.p.a as been said to be good.What do you guys think about Mancini's orange box set up. Any experiences with theirs?
yes it hole in gas line getting air in the line gas line at the gas tankOK, this is making me crazy. The engine runs great and then it's like you just turned off the key. If you let it sit for about 10 minutes it fires back up and runs fine till it decides to die again. It has the early electronic ignition with the orange box. I have checked the wiring and changed the coil, same problem. I have also been experimenting with different carburetors, not for the shutting off reason but for performance reasons and it does it with all 3 carbs. Suggestions please.
