Hello I was just wondering if anyone had a clue as 2 where my spark would have gone it is getting through the coil but thats it. i have just rebuilt the engine and the wiring on the injector loom is an old gas conversion (gone now) so i am suspect on the wires and joins being the old ignition/injector firing unit has been replace with the gas 1 which is still there.
its all in an as you guessed an old 88svo which needs to be back on the road. Any help would be greatly appreciated
Cheers
