I carried out some tests on the trigger and i get 12volts when the revlimiter is NOT active, this drops to .6volts when the li ...

Sorry for missing your post.

If Q1 is damaged it wouldn't forward the signal to the MOSFET, to activate/deactivate the hard limiter. I haven't considered this transistor as a particularly vulnerabl ...

Very Happy oh right,I got carried away there. I'm none the wiser,is 40 normal for idle speed @ 1000rpm?

The first bin is the cranking speed advance setting and this engine starts very well with a lot of ...

I can't evaluate/work in kilopascal,only psi. So your 166 KPA equates to 24psi Shocked fookin'ell,that is some boost going through a pair of dells,very impessed. There must be hope for my pinto then : ...

I have reverted t ...

Thanks for the reply,
I have now replaced the coil pack but can't test until tomorrow.
If this does not work then i will get the car in the air on the weekend and check the VR sensor and mount.

Ok further developments, i am now getting a regular misfire, but there does not seem to be a pattern to it.
I think it appears more under load but cant be sure.
the rev counter drops when the misfir ...
