Thanks for your help
I suspect that the coil is bad. Electronic ign. I'm just wanting to learn if there is a test, with my multi-meter, to see if the coil is indeed bad. It probly is.
There IS elec. to the dist. @ 12.2 volts. Batt. is long time without running. There is 12.2 at the top to the wire that goes into the coil pack on top. We also know that there is no spark.. Button, under cap, is new, rotor is new, cap new and wires new. The truck was running 2 weeks ago. Everything seemed fine. So this seems to be something that either works or doesn't work. Not somethings that weeeaarrrsss out.
OR,, have I just done the coil test. hahaha:no: you tell me!!:sign0016: My spark has left me.:eek:h:

I hate those type coils. It is so easy when you change the cap to put the wires in the wrong spots if you are not careful or have one to close to another and burn up the coil. Or just pinch one of the wires when you put the cover on the coil.

All I have in the house at the moment is the manual for our 94 and it doesn’t cover the coil in the cap setup.

Someone may know before I get to the shop for my other manual. If not, and I remember in the morning I will get the manual for the older trucks and post the test procedure.
Thanks much fiero. I want to make sure I'm not missing somethings else.... (gray matter)
