So After weeks of having no time to get around and about on my long journey to just get my poor girl running, I finally had time this Saturday.
Order of events: (What I thought)
1. Drive to the wreckers, get a ignition module.
2. See what other parts I could get that I needed.
3. Drive back home, complete the easy install
4. Start her up, give her a good clean and enjoy a late afternoon victory drive
What really happened:
1. Woke up excited and drove the wreckers
2. Got some other parts I needed and window switches in good nick
3. They sold me a Brand new module, or I had to take a chance of with a 2nd hand one. So I opted for the new
4. Drove home happily and ready to get my old girl on the road
5. Installed the new module which was easy, simply added the heat past on the mounting plate and bolted it back to the inner fender
The Green lead from the distributor to the ignition module, needed some encouragement to fit in properly and make contact.
6. The other plug that runs to the coil with the 4 pins, fitted easily with no issue.
7. Reconnect the battery and turn the ignition on and she is alive alive alive.
8. I allow the car to idle for around 10mins
9. As I make my way to the car to move it to the area where it will be washed, it switches off completely even before i get to the car.
10. I open the bonnet/hood and I feel the new ignition module is HOT
11. Leave it to cool down and hope to start it up again later, But decide to take the plug leads out.
12. 4 Pin plug lead pops out with ease.
13. Single pin plug lead (Green cable), difficult as hell to pull off, and yip I try to force it out and it snaps
14. A flurry of vulgarity follows
15. Left it just like that and gave up
This is the module I purchased and at an exorbitant price too
The green lead I speak off looks like this
So yeah, I've given up until I can find another lead and will test with the "New" Module again.
