  1. Welcome to the madness. I’m in Toronto, if you want to go for a rip In the spring can meet somewhere on the niagara escarpment. Just need to get mine running. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Can’t get this thing running. Been trying for 6 months. Runs well for 2 weeks and then goes to crap. Most recent incident was when I topped up my oil and I got oil entering the internals of the distributor. IE mech advanced one with a replaced hot spark internal. Started misfiring. Tried again tonight with putting in an older IE distributor I originally bought but blew the ignitor(didn’t have an oil leak), put the misfiring hotspark (maybe its shot?) into that one and couldn’t get it running at all. Can you check the elec ignitor? Maybe there is something outside of the distributor that keeps blowing elec ignitors. I’m running a black coil which reads 2.1 in the 200’setting on my voltage tester. The ballast resistor also reads 2.1 in the 200 setting even though it’s got the 1.8ohm stamp on it. Put in a new voltage regular solid state. Fuel pressure good 28psi. Valves reset. Reset all the throttle linkages and clearances. New plugs NGK BP, cap, rotor, IE fat wires. Timing is roughly where it needs to be. Need it to run to adjust timing. Just want to drive this thing and it won’t let me. Any ideas fellow faq’rs? Thanks for listening. Roman Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. No points or condenser. Put in that hot spark unit. Will check for loose wires behind instrument cluster when kids go to bed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. So I’ve got the car back on the road. Running nice for the better part. changed the wires to IE performance and swapped out the internals of the IE distributor for mech advance tii with the hot spark. It still has a slight hesitation here and there with the tach jumping around especially when engine is revving 4K plus. Is there a ground somewhere to look at to trouble shoot this behaviour. Coil and ballast have all been checked with ohm meter and check out. Roman Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. on a similar topic, with my tii I have been across continent 3 time. Newfoundland, Hatteras, San Diego, Vancouver. Need to do a trip to Florida and Alaska, to have done all corners of N.A. My odometer has never worked in the 20 years. is that a hole in the hood?
  6. Every time I adjust my valves I have a hell of a time trying to get the valve cover off and on, due to that dam hose that goes under the tii intake manifold to the air filter canister. 1/2” hose is too small, 3/4 too big. Cant find any 5/8” hose. Is that the size that goes there? no room to put the hose clamps on too, at the valve cover. Does anyone have the same problem... solutions?

  7. Anyone know of a tii specialist in Toronto? All you Californians have it good with all the resources down there.
  8. I think I’m finding that. Going to send out my old Bosch one to get rebuilt and put some points back in. Go old school. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I was pretty sure it did. Have used blue with resistor for 20 yrs and all of a sudden I have issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Maybe it’s the replacement IE distributor they sent me. Again? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Without ballast resistor I can finally get a strong signal and set timing properly. But still runs like crap under load. Fuel pressure good at 28. New cap rotor wires. Adjusted valves. I have no more ideas. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks. Just did that. Got the pin to set in the hole. Set everything to zero according to tii manual. Gave the mixture screw another half turn. Cleaned plugs. Fires right up. Start driving and she’s backfiring. Timing set to [email protected] Keep fouling plugs. Weird thing is that when I put the cyl 1 sensor of my timing gun, it has a hard time picking up a pulse and intermittently hesitated to flash. Brings me right back to square one with spark problem. I have a 1.8ohm ballast resistor. Are there any that have a lower resistance. Will try bi passing it to see it it helps with spark. Making me crazy. 3.5hrs of setting and resetting and cleaning plugs. Think I’ve had them In and out at least 6 tokes now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
