Re: [T3] Suggestions on finding a short in the wiring harness?


<x-flowed>I spun the engine by hand, opened the points, and the coil has 12
volts all the time, regardless of whether the points are opened or
closed. What does this mean? What should I check?

<< Update: the starter is working again. Fiddling with the wiring got it
 going. Now I am cranking the car, and I have no spark. Checked the
 coil, no spark coming out. Replaced it. Checked the new coil. Still no
 spark. Checked with the multimeter. 12 volts running through it fine,
 pulling 6 amps. Nothing coming out. The resistance on both circuits of
 the coil is the same, about 9000 ohms. No spark coming out. Ideas?

Only thing I can think of is a burned thru wire from the points to the
condenser inside the distributor.
