86 Aspencade SEI - electrical

Postby jae56 » Sat Jun 16, 2012 5:10 pm



I've been working on an 86 Aspencade SEI. It starts great when it's cold and runs perfect at all RPMs and under load. It predicably dies in about 4 minutes. After it stops it won't start again for several hours. (Note: After it dies it has good battery, lights, will crank strong, fuel pump runs, but there is no spark to any of the four plugs.) The coils and the coil wiring check out. The alternator and the voltge regulator are un-plugged in an effort to eliminate the stator issues. I would really appreciate any advice but also have a specific question... The Pulse Generator is 168 ohms cold and 188 ohms when it dies. There are no shorts to ground. What is the correct spec for the Pulse Generator? I have seen both 330 ohms +-30 ohms and 1200 ohms +-100. What is corrrect and do you think this could be the problem even though there is minimal change and it doesn't show any shorts to ground.

Have a look at this post.viewtopic.php?f=16&t=11800 Obviously there are a few components to suspect,this will help narrow it down by showing what is failing.If it's not clear,post again with any question.
