I have completely removed the
I have completely removed the tach from the dash!! It's sitting in the floor of the car.
Yes I have good cranking voltage while cranking the engine. I have about 11volts while cranking.
I removed the distributor today and hooked up my volt meter directly to the pick-up on the side of the distributor. I spun the distributor by hand and voltage will vary from 1.5V to 5v when spinning fast by hand.
I have tried varoius brand new coils..still the same thing. Coil ground is one that I made directly to ground so I know it is solid.
Everything i have tested has tested good. All relays,fuses etc. The wiring is fine..I know this because I made my own harness independent of the cars one..and still nothing. The engine block to frame ground is good and solid. The distributor ground is solid.
What else could this be? I'm completly stumped how is this possiable with a new box,new coil,new wiring,knowen good pick-up,new coil wire,all grounds checked? Can't think of anything else right now,but WTF is going on here?
