is it possible that the distributor module has decided to die, its the external type module?
c'mon guys i need help here
Yes Ron, it is very possible that your module is packing up! Sometimes they just stop working, but usually they give you some warning they are on the way out.
Just coincidence it started playing up when you were working on the choke.
I had the same XC setup in mine, when my large module started to pack up I replaced it with an aftermarket unit (Scorcher). This required a different coil and a little rewiring.
A dyno could probably pin point your problem. Lets take it as a given it's your module. You need to find an ignition specialist near you who can do the coversion for you, time to get on the phone.
If you were in Melbourne I could save you some leg work, here's what I found out when I replaced mine about 12 months ago;
-ICE would not work on XC style electronic dizzy's,as there are no replacement parts avaliable. They do a bullet proof setup with a modified XD dizzy $600+ and I supply the XD unit.
-getting a replacement module was not an option. Buying one from a wreaker is a lottary, if you can find one. People claimed to have reconditioned units, but could not tell me what was reconditioned? just cleaned and tested!
-some form of after market coversion. Mine cost $350 for them to do it and rebuild/ regraph the dizzy, new coil, rewiring including 12V coil supply for my origianally six cylinder car. It runs great and a 12.9 pass on nitrous didn't bother it.
- I'm sure you could do the module conversion yourself if you knew what you were doing. I know my limitations!
Hope thats clear and helps Ron good luck
