Still haven't got the Olds to start, but I think the tach filter, what ever they call it, is the problem.I disconected the coil and left power hooked up and strike the - side to ground and coil will fire. If I ground coil with tach filter connected to coil, no fire. I ordered a new part[12048976 wire]. Do you think it will start with the new part?
I installed a different computer today and didn't change anything.
ok, then let get your self a voltmeter lest check the wires from the computer to the coil as shown on this schematic they are 4 wires ,if you look at the electronic spark module (this is the distribuito) there are 4 wires coming out of the distribuitor and the colors are #1 purple with a white line, #2black and red tracer,#3white,#4tan and black. can you mach this colors to the distribuitor wires?
