[DML] Re: Dave Teitlebaum & Tom Neiland win the Fix Dave Delman's ignition problem con

What I meant about the impulse coil is that they seem to fail
completely or intermittantly, either way the motor won't run. What we
don't see is a coil that makes the motor run badly, it seems to be all
or nothing. As for Dave's car, many owners would not go to the lengths
he went to to get the motor to run smooth. I see a lot of cars that
don't run smooth, the owners live with it, I guess either because they
don't know better or don't want to spend the time and the money to get
it right. The point is they can be made to run smooth, it can take a
lot of work to do it though!
