Just been doing a MPI conversion. Started on Sunday morning with a bare manifold. We went around looking for the loom, throttle body and sensors and when we finally had the stuff we mixed and matched to get a complete manifold.
The loom was virtually complete bar a ignition coil plug, we just found another one and wired it up, all good.
Anyway, after almost 8 hours straight working on the car, we were ready to start it. Crank, crank, crank...no start. Got the timing light out and hooked it up to the number 1 lead, no spark. Number 2 lead, no spark.
After a bit of messing around, we though it was the TFI. Replaced the TFI, same story. Replaced the coil, no spark still! We then called Simon (Bass_Crazy) up and he suggested that the distributor may be stuffed. After exchanging the dizzy for a working one, we spent another hour putting it in. Still no spark!
There is 12v at the coil plug but there seems to be no spark coming from the coil. There was only one wire left un-attatched, it was a light pink/cream coloured one and when traced back to the injector loom plug it was found to join up to a brown wire with blue bands. I joined that up to the corresponding wire on the TFI loom. Still no spark!
I feel that the loom may be stuffed (ie. shorted along the line somewhere), but does anyone have any suggestions.
We have ruled out the following :
*Bad connection at the coil
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE IT COULD BE! :sook::sook:
Thanks in advance,
