Being a v8 Cleveland site i dont know much about EAs, but i have sold lots of parts to taxi drivers over the years, and a common fault is the coil. Even though it may have spark, try a coil. You may be pleasantly surprised.

Re: EA Falcon starting problems

Hi
Change the thick film on the side of the dizzy... usually the culprit. when replacing, make sure you put plenty of heat transfer goo between module and dizzy,you may wanna rip out dizzy and check that it's not tight to turn. What happens is the dizzy's bearing gets gunked up and siezes, the motor continues to turn it, however the heat buildup on the outer casing is massive and the module is mounted right near this so the excess heat kills the module. At $70 a pop, it's worth ripping out the dizzy first to make sure this isn't the case.
