If you are installing it to a different engine you will have to program the Ignition. I kinda goofed- I was putting in a new ignition module in my 87 tbi distributor- a 15 minute job, right? This test will directly test the ignition coil itself and thus eliminate the distributor cap as a possible source of the No spark result. You will need to run some new fuel feed lines or braided hose. The fuel tank gauge is also independent of the computer wiring. Despite the name, the push start mode is also enabled during engine starting with the ignition key.
If you are experiencing run-on, it is due to a small amount of voltage going through the charging lamp indicator and feeding the small Red wire even if the key is turned off. Each time you break this short, a spark should jump from the coil wire to ground. Ballast Resistor: If your vehicle has a ballast resistor in-line with the coil wiring, it is recommended to bypass it. Turn the ignition to the On position. Experience at the races has shown that if your engine is experiencing a miss or hesitation at higher rpm, it is usually not directly ignition.
After tracing the circuit and connectors for a circuit, he laid out the changes he needed to make. To lengthen the wires, use one size bigger gauge wire 12 gauge for the power leads and 16 gauge for the other wires with the proper connections. I stuck another throttle body on, I replaced the tps, I tried another computer, and replaced the ignition module. It helps assure temperature and mount stability of the module. If triggering with the Magnetic Pickup: 1.
The following is an excellent idea from a fellow Stangnetter who tackled the wiring plan the right way. This could confuse you as to which wire is the 1 circuit. Just enough pins to leave you short when assembling a connector. The push start mode allows for increased dwell, or coil on time, when starting the engine. So, when setting up your module wiring, it's best to install a relay that'll provide full line voltage to the module via the coil + terminal. The material must be compatible with the camshaft.
The following wiring diagrams illustrate numerous installations on different vehicles and applications. This will take power away from other items on the same circuit or cause the fuse or fuse link to blow. This results in a more powerful spark which is more likely to ignite the air-fuel mixture. In an inductive ignition, the coil must store and step up the voltage to maximum strength in between each firing. For more information on recommended coils, check with our Customer Service Department at 915 855-7123. Operation of a motor vehicle modified in such as manner as described below should be limited to off road use only.
Remember to always use proper connections followed by soldering and seal the connections completely. Do not crank the engine. Use the factory harness for the rest of the wires. Always securely connect the ground wire to a clean, paint free metal surface. The dial on the left is for 1,000 rpm increments, on the right is for 100 rpm increments. The pulsing means the wire from the computer to the ignition control module is good and the computer is working.
The color of the wires in the illustration will not match the ones on your vehicle. Note that the colors of the wires shown in the diagram below are at the module itself. For example, in a Chevy V8, the firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. If the tach still does not operate, you will need a Tach Adapter. Carbs have their own set of requirements and some learning is required to get the best performance. There should be a thick film of dielectric grease on the back metal side of the module.
The chart in Figure 4 lists common tachometers and if an Adapter is necessary. At the junkyard, small blocks tend to all look alike. If spark is not found, check for spark at the coil wire. Also be sure that the program dials can be accessed. Makes it hard to troubleshoot when we don't know what you have.
