DEFEATED: XR700 module officially dead. Back to points? :(


Recommended Posts


Sorry for your troubles on the XR700. I recently bought a '74 02 in early August. The ignition system is stock, and drove it 210 miles from NY back to the Boston area w/o any problems. Coil/dizzy/wires are all stock. Car is desmogged, and running a 32/36 weber. Spark plugs look good, and I get an occasional runon when I shut it down. I've put another 250-300 miles on it w/o any trouble. I've done a compression test, and adjusted the valves. Next step is to confirm timing/dwell (to be honest, I have to read up on this a little bit...much has been forgotten). It runs well enough now, but like everyone here, you want to see if you can do better. I plan to upgrade to a pertronix or some type of electronic ignition next year. Good luck... -Chris
