New here with a 1982 New Yorker 5th ave. Been slowing working on it as I drove the car. Things are coming together ok as I am restoring it. Last week warning up in morning and just died. From that point on, no spark coming out of coil. New coil the same. Power going in to both sides of coil, with key in on position and when cranking power going to coil, but no spark. Over a period of time, I have replaced, Electronic Fuel Control System, black box connected to air cleaner, new coil, new wires, carb and everythiing else not associated with this problem. Car is in excellent condtion, no leaks, etc, excellent base to restore.
Car was running just fine, getting in the 20s mpgs and just died that morning, no spark coming from coil, but power going in.
The book writes of a ballast resistor on these cars, but I swear I have seached high and low for it, my guess in it build into the EFC system on air clearner.
Been on this problem for days, testing in every direction, checking all grounds time and again.
Car has original 74,000 + miles
Has anyone had to deal with this issue and if so any clues as to what may be wrong? Getting ready to place in a new coil as it is possible for the other one to not work properly, made in china. Both coils read slightly under 1ohm and 9,000 ohms.
Thanks for your assistance.
