Just won't start!

Recommended Posts

Hi Dan


You might have seen, I seem to having a similar problem with my 2.2 now (misfire, cutting out when hot)...may well be the original ballast resistor giving up...what new ballast resistor did you use, what resistence (3 ohms correct ?)   and  is it with a 6v or 12v coil ?




If it's a ballast resistor then it it's a 6v coil, the coil get full power from the battery when cranking, but due to load  the potential the coil experiences is down to around 9-10v, when not cranking , the ballast resistor carries some of the potential so the coil again experiences less than 12v.
