confused I need Help with ZK!!

Ive been having problems with the ZK stalling and not wanting to start for like 40mins. See here

I have changed the following

* Starter
* EFI Fuel Relay
* Fuel Pump

I changed the fuel pump over yesterday. Now when i took it for a drive today it just kept on stalling for 1sec then would spring to life then drive. It kept on doing this. It sounds to me like its got no spark? unfortunatly i cannot tell as it does it randomly when driving. Is it the Dizzy or Ignition coil? please help as im at witts end!

thanks in advance

Re: I need Help with ZK!!

Doesnt have points, XE's had electronic ignition.

I pulled out plug 1 and it had a medium to dark brown colour to them. Ive checked the Rotor button aswell and it had a black burt tip on it, i sanded it smooth so its clean. Leads are cheapo things think they are MAXILEAD? but are in good nick

Re: I need Help with ZK!!

While im at it

I pulled spark plug 1 out to check it and it was a light/medium brown colour? this means there worn? Can i run XF Style plugs in a XE EFI motor?

D..
If you want to just keep changing things until you hit on the problem, the next best guess is probably the distributor..
How's your EA going now?

Re: I need Help with ZK!!

Re: I need Help with ZK!!
