Re: TFI switch

I assume you mean TFI module... if you can get at the screws on it (on the side of the distributor) it will come off - push it down a bit so it will come off the hall sensor. If you install a new one you MUST put plenty of that white heat transfer grease on the back of it or it will fail in short order.

If you can't get at the screws on the module the dissy will have to come out :{

Re: TFI switch

Check, Double check and triple check all of your vacuum hoses and electrical connections- You have probably disturbed something in the process of changing the tfi. Also, are you ABSOLUTELY sure that the timing is correct?? You need to put the eec-iv (computer) in self test mode then you get a minute or so to check the BASE timing - around 10 degrees btdc.

Re: TFI switch

There Is One Hose Missing From The Inlet Manifold To The Firewall Do You Think That Would Make It Run Like Shit

Re: TFI switch

You betcha! The hose probably goes to the MAP sensor. With the hose not connected the engine will gulp raw air into the inlet manifold and lean out the mixture like hell. And it will probably affect most the cylinders nearest the tap off point on the mainfold. And you'll also have one rather confused ECU!
