Alright here's the situation. I'm very competent with this motor, and hate being defeated by a problem......but I have been defeated. I took my disty apart a few weeks ago and put new seals and a new bearing in it. Put everything back together, blah blah blah. About 4 days later the car starts cutting out when I get to 4k, and shuts down if I try to continue accelerating.
I was stumped for a few days, and had the epiphany of a lifetime: You forgot to reset your ignition timing, dumbass (excuse my french
). So I retarded the timing a little, and the problem was GONE. However, this was not good enough for me. I wanted to be SURE the timing was dead on......so I grabbed my timing light.
Now, here is the problem i'm having now. I jump the GND and TEN pins, turn the key on, and hear it go into diag mode. Start the car, shine the timing light on the harmonic balancer, and it is sitting on T. Hmm, it should be at 10, not T. So I loosen the disty, and rotate it either way........and the mark stays in the same spot. If I advance it all the way, the motor will die. Retard all the way, and nothing happens. The mark will not move at all.
Any ideas? Like I said in the thread title, I have a KLZE, KL31 Ecu, JE50, and a DE disty. Also, the car is a 1995 Mx-6.
