I never pulled the timming chain off or anything below the head besides the water pump so could of that still happened? but that did come to mind it was TDC and piston was up and it was right up to TDC and dizzy went in on the spot then it still struglled to start and run i also have full charged battery and spare one ready to replace when getting it started

Definately at TDC on cyl 1, not cyl 6?

If the engine is set for TDC cyl 6 but the dizzy put to fire on cyl 1, it wont start... But I imagine if you play with the dizzy position and rotate it, you may eventually get it to start buy luck.

I put the dizzy in my EL one tooth wrong once. I got it to start and turned it enough to get proper ignition timing before it hit the retainer bracket and bolt. If you still need more movement to get the right ignition setting, I would guess its alot more out of adjustment than 1 tooth. :S

I rang a mechanic today and told him the problem i was under going and he sitting on the distributor in wrong or the distributor screwed or if my luck SUCKS the Computer
I got new Points, new leads, new dizzy cap, new rotor button and new EFI Coil for the model motor all the electrical gear is Bosch now lol

He will fix it and timming light tune up for $45
plus parts which could be dizzy what i can get for $55 and they will match my one
If it computer hell if i know how much that ganna be

Its just getting to the point of F*%King rediculas it should just start after rebuild and timming all correct
EFI stands for
Enormous F#(king Idiots
thats what i think of the designers of efi

As Much as the XF EFI was a f**k up, the later model MPI EFI Motors are a thing of beauty! If you do need an XF ECU, Give me a shout and you can just pay me postage and a little bit of fuel for it!

Geeze Im a Nice Bloke!
