Hi, i need some help!
I have a MK2 Astra with a 2.0 16v XE in it, converted from 8v and now i can't get it to start! I have tracked it down to no power going into the Dizzy, it's had a new coil & pack, Dizzy, Rota arm, cap,
the plug on the side of the dizzy (with "+ 0 -" on it) doesn't give me any power at the + side with the ignition on, and the coil will not send a spark when turned over, but after the ignition has been left on a while (5mins) it will send loads of sparks to the ht lead, but i'm not turning the engine over!
and got shocked a few times wondering why this happened! could that be a build up of power in the coil, or just having a go at me !
I wonder if it's a break in the wiring loom, or the ecu!
Anyone got any ideas! or better still an inlet manifold for twin carbs! I just can't get my head round how this works.
