77 Dodge W200 no spark
i have a 77 dodge w200. This has happened on several occasions where i
will work on the truck changing coil, setting air gap, plugs, wires and nothing
changes, will not start. No spark anywhere. Then i walk by the truck a week
or so later and it starts. Last time i let it sit for 2 weeks and since then i have
not been able to start it. what i noticed with someone helping me, after trying
3 coils, two different distributors, new ignition module, hot wire from battery
to coil and starter thus by passing key, still no spark. also attached ground
from battery directly to coil mounting bolt. nothing seems to get me spark.
Cursed this electronic ignition more than once. (oh yes i have had the carb
off this truck 6 times in a month, that gooooooooood gas we buy now days
just seems to gum up in the carb). any ideas?
hows the ign.switch???
by putting a hot lead to coil and hot lead to starter i am by passing ignition switch
CHECK THE CERAMIC IGNITION RESISTOR [WHITE ABOUT 1"X 3"] WHEN PLUG WIRES GET OLD AND CRACK, MOISTURE WILL CAUSE RESISTOR TO SHORT.
