View Full Version : Car won't start...

08-29-2003, 05:38 PM
I have an MSD6A, blaster coil, and MSD Pro Billet for a Ford FE. I've done the diagnostic test on the box and coil, I'm getting a good spark when I break the circuit on the purple/green wires.

I also tried testing continuity through the distributor, I'm not able to complete the circuit through the distributor when I run leads to/from the magnetic pickup wires.

Does this point to the distributor as the problem?

This problem occured all at once, it ran fine one day and the next it would not start...

Yes, it does appear to be the magnetic pickup if you do not have continuity through the pickup wires. Check the wires on the pickup to makes sure they are not damaged or a bad crimp has occured on the connector.
