[DML] Re: Still -more- ignition nonsense....

The ONLY thing you haven't replaced is the ignition ECU...

Do you understand how coils build up HT electricity? Normally grounded
breakerless module (or points) momentarily breaks that ground, causing
the coil to suddenly build up a high voltage charge, which is then
passed to a plug as the distributor rotor passes it. If it for some
reason fails to break the ground -- no spark. If it doesn't break
ground long enough -- weak spark. If it breaks ground too long --
burned up coil.

Bosch ECU of course has to adjust dwell times to yield a consistent
spark over the entire RPM range. Yours may not be doing that. Try
swapping it with Mike's.
