Not sure the color of my spark, but its weak. I think the dist cap and rotor may have been ruined in the power washing.

The wife just found out about me buying a radiator thanks to those customs fuckers at Purolator. She is getting irritated with me spending money.

Yesterday she said, we still got to paint your car, with all the money you put in cars I could just have gotten the new Sti and been done.

She makes good sense, but I am so close to being done.

Installed the ASI radiator.
Video comparison on this thread:
http://www.alltrac.net/phpBB2/viewtopic ... 3&start=30

I found that my radiator was empty but my motor still had water. It was all rusty. I have a feeling the radiator went over the time it was sitting.

Still not starting yet though.

maybe its time to get one of those mail boxes at the UPS store ;)

i had an issue with spark after driving through some torrential rain, and after i hosed down my engine bay to clean it. both times it turned out that the distributor cap got wet.

I think once I get a new cap and rotor my problems will go away. I decided to sell my emanage. I am trying to keep my project simple, so I just going to do a boost controller and call it a day. I don't want to create anymore headaches for myself. I would rather put that $$ into a bbk.

Hopefully the emanage will be sold by next week. I want to start on my BBK once my car is painted.

I finally ordered my Cap and Rotor for my distributor.
I was paranoid about part numbers and got my old EPC to work long enough to verify the cap and rotor numbers.
The part numbers I used are: Cap 19101-88460, rotor 19102-74040

Now I just have to wait for the cap to get here, then I can narrow down all my issues.

I am trying to figure out how to do this new type of photo editing with an old picture. I still have not figured it out on my own, so I am going to have to google info, but this came out alright.

Now, we wait.

Oh ok. I didn't know if you were going to strip the side molding off and only got about 1/4 the way through.

Well, I got the new cap and rotor on. It still won't stay started, but at least it turns over now. So now I have to find the rest of my electrical gremlins. I wonder if I have a short somewhere. When I turn the key into the on position, the connector box for my disc changer makes a noise like a relay. But it keeps doing it. I wonder if somehow it could be related, even though it never did that before.

I bought a car a while ago with a similar problem, turned out that the pins going into the plug for the distributor were loose. Check all the wires on each side of the plug, give them a tug and make sure they've got a secure connection to the pins. If it's only holding on by a couple strands it'll look like it's right but not have a good enough connection. But I'd work backwards from the distributor. Have you tried a different coil as well?

The connectors all seem good except for the cable that goes from the dist cap to the igniter.

The plastic is broke on it.

Its been too hot to work on the car. I am hoping to get up early and mess with it some.

I have finally been trying to finish that alltrac drawing I started so many years ago too.

Good time.
