    Default {CARB-SWAP}Ok I grounded my duraspark case...

    But yet, still nothing...Still hesitates a under light acceleration...

    The box is still a little warm (I didnt drive it far, just to get it up to operating temp) Not smoking hot like it was the other day.... The coil is still cool as a cucumber, and it is mounted in stock location. wtf???

    Im prob going to get a duraspark coil, and see if that solves the issue I am having. If not, I will continue to speculate.

    The saga continues....

    Slight hesitation is not your coil.
    You have a tuning issue. If your base timing is set and you have no vacuum leaks then you need to tune your carb.

    I agree on teh timing and vac leak thing.

    The carb comes from the factory pre-tuned. I stuck mine on, and it runs great, no tweaking required. His carb came from teh same place mine did. It shouldn't make a difference.

    Tom-if you decide to go with a canister coil, make sure it has built in ballast resistor, so you can forgo the external resistor or resistor wire. Less of a pain in the ass.

    This will piss you off Tom, but after I got home from my speedy ride home tonight, my vacuum cannister had more heat to it than my duraspark box the only ground it has is through the dist.

    Like I said before, I run a MSD TFI coil without a ballast resistor. If any coil draws too much juice, it oughtta be mine

    I think if you get the fuel pressure issue fixed you'll be fine.

    Will a spiked fuel pressure gauge cause a smokin' hot duraspark box?

    I think not.

    this might be so...i was told not to use a high out put coil cuz it might fry the duraspark module.
