Got +12v to the ign coil? does the coil spark if you ground the negative(-) terminal? does the distributor rotor rotate? it may be time to replace the distributor sproket and module (stator and armature).

I guess you could have the ignition analyzed on an oscilloscope. Maybe a tech could see something then.
I always heard the only gap was the spark plug gap-the rotor has no gap-are you sure you got the correct rotor? And does it touch the top distributor cap coil wire tower?

Let us know. It is a mystery worthy of a solution.

Take spark plug out and while plug wire is connected to plug...ground plug to chassis and turn the engine and watch for spark in plug gap.

If you have a spark in the gap...I'd then check fuel system for clogged filter, fuel pump pressure etc.
If you don't have a spark in plug gap...then I'd go to the coil or coil pack depending on the model.

Hope this helps...

Spark to distributor from coil, no spark coming from plug wires, replaced ignition module, no help

Hello Nummy.

If you have spark at the coil the module is OK. The module fires the coil.
Your problem then becomes the ignition wires, the distributor cap or the rotor.
These are the items that carry the high voltage to the spark plug.
There is also the possibility the spark is jumping off at the coil itself when all is hooked up.
This happens because the resistance increases through the wiring and jumping the gap at the spark plugs.
I hope your repair goes well. Thank you for using FixYa.

Engine rotates but will not start. Have installed

the problem is almost certainly the ignition module and the stator inside the ditributor, they are a real problem in this year.

I had the same problem with my 85 cj7 this week, I relpaced the ignition control module, plugs, wires, cap, rotor and the the coil; still had no fire to plugs. the problem turned out to be my distributor, replaced it today and she fired right up. Most likely it was the pick up module in the distributor that went bad.
