can you see how it runs for me when you unplug the timing bypass connector?
im sorry, its a tan and black wire located near the firewall.
These were really bad on distributers, they had excess play and the pickup coils went on them, by uplugging the bypass connector it usually runs better if its the distributer
you can, It will drive like loss of power though. Its meant for setting the timings so the advance is not optimal.
Give it a shot and let me know. I use to replace these dirstibuters all the time for stalling and low idle (after i repalced the iac motor of course, lol)
I wouldnt do it for a permanent fix though, just to eliminate the distributer.
just checking how your progress went!
did it make any difference with the timing connector disconnected?
no, it is located along the firewall, taped to the main harness. it is a tan/black wire.
single long connector.
it will look like this - see pic
sorry it was corrupt fir some reason
