  1. Ya. Had a blue coil with resistor setup for years. Found that the old dizzy’s advance was too steep of a curve. Also had petronix in there. Changed it with the 180 dollar IE one. Put a new Bosch cap and rotor on. Can there ignitor just come off and I put my old petronix in there? Gonna be a hot one. Anyone down in Pittsburgh should go out to Ohiopyle park and swim in the natural water slides to cool off. Beautiful down there. Went last year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks Ed. Will try it this weekend. Gave up on the trip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Going home. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Injection pump belt ok. Stumped. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Coil resistance good. Maybe the fuel injection pump belt blew up. A bit more involved to open that cover up to see on the side of the road. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Bypassed ballast. Nothing. Will check resistance on coils. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Just changed the coil to a blue one fro the black. Turns over, fuel pressure at 22psi. No spark at all. Will try bypassing the ballast. I have the IE distributor with the pointless inside. Not sure what ie uses. What else would contribute to no spark. Checked the ignition switch. All wires good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Non stop trouble. Had her running great. Thought I’d make it to Pittsburgh. Heard a pop. Tach went nuts. Afr gauge went nuts. No power. Just cruised off the highway. And dead. Changed coil. Nothing. I have 22psi at fuel pressure but no run. Bummed sitting at the side of the road. Ran great for 20 years. Now no. Sorry for the rant. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Ok, gonna swap it out for what I have and look for a shop to weld the cast ( fist assess if its a complicated crack). Does anyone know if napa carries the 5 exhaust gaskets and 8 nuts. Want to get this done before Thursday. Heading down to the PVGP. Roman
  10. I knew the engine sounded crappy on full throttle. Here it is. Has anyone ever had the header welded as a repair? I have another one but not sure if it’s a tii. So many threads about them but still not sure. Here’s a photo of replacement option. Let me know your thoughts. Roman Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Those are amazing photos. Thanks for sharing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. No problem with signals and got the low beams working. Needed to clean the high beam lever switch. The dangler has constant voltage... 12v when not running and 13.5 when running. Comes out of the 9 pin connector before the signals. Just under the steering column. No led upgrades. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. You no like the dangler subject? Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’ve been trying to get my low beams to work and have been spelunking under the steering column. I found a loose dangling wire, (see photo green white with black sleeve) which comes from the 9 point plug just after the turning signal switch. It’s a green and white GN-WS and it looks like it’s on terminal 5. I can figure where it goes. My wiring diagram for a 73 tii shows no GN-WS and terminal 5 is blank. Need some help from my fellow faqers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Wanted to wrap up this thread... replaced all 4 plugs with the NGK BP6ES. Amazing. Smooth... Bosch ones were all fouled. Could have been with all the back forth tuning going too far one way or the other, that they just go too fouled to run properly. The new dizzy from Ireland is amazing as well. To feel the difference of a properly set advance curve. Mine was too steep, and I can feel the difference in acceleration. Loves it at 4500 rpm. Also put in a fuel pressure guage on the cold start line. After the banjo fitting. Without the car running, I got 24psi. After warm up, it was down to 20psi. Is this something to be concerned about? My AFR was 10 at idle and never went past 15. I will start the process of ordering and redoing the pump assembly, but just wondering if driving 1000 miles ok for a weekend road trip. PVGP coming up!
