Hi

Have a probrem

I have an xe fairmont ghia with a 302 cleveland in it

The problem is when it gets hot it dies. The coil looses spark.

Have tried another coil, coil lead does the same thing

There is 12 volts to the coil also

Im stuck _ not sure what else it is
Any ideas?

I love them


Fixed it - was a module problem

Next is to get the 351 in the shed rebuilt for it - i have a block with a standard bore - never touched.
