SOURCE: The main fuse keeps blowing

with the fuse blowing without turning on the ignition woul indicate a bare wire touching ground somewhere finding just where that is occureing is a long process other possible causes are that there is a short in the starter solonoid or that your ignitionswitch is open circuited

it is the gap between the rotor for the pickup coil and the coil pickup face
the ignition coil makes energy from the rotator to feed the spark plug

Ignition mystery! 1994 GMC Suburban 2500 5.7 mtr. No spark to spark plugs. Have spark from coil to distributor. Have changed coil wire, cap, rotor, ignition module, and coil. have 12.5 volts going to...

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.

1992 Plymouth Acclaim While driving up the road

when you say coil, do you mean the ignition coil or the pick up coil (aka pickup module)? It is located under the rotor in the distributor-if you replaced the distributor (did you really?) it should have had a new unit in it, the only other thing I could guess is you have some sort of issue with a fuse or relay for the ignition.

Defective ignition coils?

You should be able to check for continuity/resistance at the terminals for the coils. If you have no continuity, or very low resistance, you most likely have bad coils. The old Yamahas had very crappy electrical systems. They have a lot of problems with CDI's, coils, and stators/rotors/regulators/rectifiers. You should be able to get continuity through the wires from one end to the other also.

1990 chevy lumina apv - pickup coil -runs ok 15 mi & stalls

I'm assuming you have the distributor out? You will need to, as the shaft has a gear on the bottom end that has a roll pin. Make sure ALL is marked so that you re-assemble it the same way. You also need to mark the rotor position, and the base of the distributor so you can put it back where it was, or you will have to re-align and time everything!

1984 toyota pickup 22r motor. No fire to distributor, I have power to coil but no power from coil to coil wire to distributor. coil, distributor modgual, altunator, all checked good. any ideas wall help.

At the cost of the igniter i recommend checking your pickup coil.( The 2 wire sensor in side of your distributor. The The igniter will not allow the coil to fire with out reference form the pickup coil. Coil has primary and secondary resistances. when the primary coil powers up and then pulses off, this cause a high voltage due to magnetic degeneration. Check the coils primary and secondary resitances along with the air gap in the pickup coil, and also check the resitances on the pickup coil. If i am right your igniter will be okay.Get a good manual for you truck, It will save you money down the road.
Toyota does not have at test proseger for the ingiter.

Also check the wires in between the pickup coil and the igniter.
I hope this helped.

Miss when it's cold and or wet

I noticed you didnt say that you replaced the "pickup coil" when tested the resistance should read about .56 of an ohm. Also the distributor shaft bushings like to wear out in them. if you can take the shaft and move it around(causing the gap to change at the pickup coil and reluctor wheel) then you need a distributor replaced. most fuel issues will not cause a quick shutdown. they cause slow die-outs. Hope I helped. Thanks
