Breakdown in Clem 7

Recommended Posts

Yep,

A coil on its last legs can definitely fail under a high heat/load situation.

Most frustrating bit about that is it'll usually measure ok, so it can be a pain to diagnose.

likewise a fusible link could do this, keep the engine running and give the wires a wiggle if faulty engine will stall lynton 8)

Thanks for all the tips and ideas.

 

The coil is quite new (only a year or 2 and I don't drive the car much).

 

Hard to test the fuel situation as it is now running completely fine so I would have to wait for it to breakdown again to check. I couldn't check anything in the tunnel because you aren't allowed out of your car :(

 

Last night I replaced the ignition module with a spare and put on a new dizzy cap and rotor button as I just happened to have them lying around. Didn't take it for a long drive as it was late, so will test out more tomorrow. But it ran better than usual and didn't miss a beat :)

Ah yes Lyton, I did think fuse when it happened but then kinda forgot to check them once it was running again. Will also check tonight  8)
