Re: Car Just Stoped & Theres No Spark HELP!
If theres spark at the dizzy but not past it, its a weird one....
It could be possible that the TFI is buggered and is delaying the spark so its firing between posts, or the pin has sheared and the dizzy gear has slightly spun on the shaft (this does happen) and the rotor will still turn, just not in the right position to the rest of the engine.
Alternatively could be carbon tracking in the cap or rotor.
Sim, turn the engine by hand and line up the TDC mark on the balancer with the mark on the timing cover (provided the balancer isnt rooted)
and take the dizzy cap off.
The rotor will either be facing #1 lead or #6 lead.
If its on #6, keep turning the motor another 360* so the rotor is facing #1.
In the dizzy there is a plastic cap beneath the rotor that has 2 marks, start and finish, so the rotor should be lined up with the finish mark.
remove the retainer bolt, and pull the dizzy upwards, you may need to twist and turn it to get it out.
To put the other in, hold the dizzy in your hand and turn the rotor to the start mark, then slowly lower it into the block, and turn it a bit to get it in, and once seated properly, the rotor should again be facing the finish mark.
Be aware that you need to get the oil pump drive in too, so if it doesnt go 1st off, your rotor should be nearly facing the finish mark, get someone to turn the engine (by hand or by key) while you push down slightly on the dizzy, then it should drop in.
Keep turning the motor 720* until the tdc mark lines up again, and then line up the rotor with the finish mark, and install the retainer bolt and lock it up there.
See if it starts, if it does, then set the base timing etc..
Hope this helps - otherwise there are diagrams etc in the grerorys r max ellerys books that will explain it a bit better.
