Ok. I've had this 86 2.0 for a week and am trying to figure out what the guy who had it before me did. I'm not getting any spark at all. I bought a blaster coil for it and need to make sure how to hook it up. My chiltons doesn't have a very good picture of how the wires go. there are 2 black/whites, a red/white, a white(i assume is the tach), and the 2 wires coming from the distributor. I picked up a used dist from the junkyard off of a slightly newer model and I'm hoping it will fit, if not I will try and swap the electronics from it to the old dist.
can I eliminate the resistor? could I use a resistor wire from the coil to the cap to eliminate the ballast resistor? I'm trying to simplify things in the engine bay
