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

I seem to recall you had the car that ran badly and when you replaced
a connection (or a wire I am not sure) to the ignition coil it ran
much better. I am guessing you still have some wiring problems that
have not been sorted out yet. When you accelerate you are putting the
ignition system under a heavier load than idling so whatever is
happening is happening under the increasd load. Check out the entire
wiring system for the primary ignition system. This includes the
wiring harness, the white ballast resistors, the bypass relay, and all
of the plugs and connections. You are correct, the timing light should
not go out. This indicates you are not getting secondary voltage to
the spark plugs. Try putting the timming light on the wire from the
ignition coil to the distributer. If it stays lit up then you are
loosing the power in the distributer. I once had a rotor short out and
I couldn't get a spark to come out of the distributer even though I
knew I was getting the power going in! Just because you put new parts
in doesn't mean you couldn't have a defective one, or maybe it got
damaged when you installed it.
