My son's luck continues with his 360, 79 Dodge Lil Express truck.
Breakdowns since begining August.
1. Water pump failure
2. Distributor cap & rotor replaced (last week)
3. TQ Carb flooding replaced with Holley (yesterday)
Tonight phoned up truck won't start.
When checked no spark at plugs.
Checked volts at +ve on coil, only shows 6volts, remove +ve wire from coil check across earth to battery, supply goes to 12v.
Cleaned earth to block, changed battery for a fully charged one plus jump leads from mine, no difference, checked and cleaned all connectors (coil, terminal block on wing etc). Swapped coil to check volts still show 6volts
Distributor is magnetic contactless system with two wires (Yellow/black & black) disappear into loom.
Don't have workshop manual so can't follow wires.
There are two modules on the bulk head. Passenger side, a silver one. Drivers side (left hand drive) a blue one I would guess this is the ignition amplifier module.
Does anyone know if there are any checks I can do that I might of missed or how do I check the modules.
The wiring is a real chop job with parts of the original loom taped up and replaced with god knows what.
Truck had run fine this morning until parked up.
