Thumbs down same trouble

Most autoparts stores can test the module. I am having same trouble and have replaced the coil module and rebuilt the distributor. Let me know what you found out.

Could be the pick-up inside the distributor.. Don't think they can test that. Could test if you had a known good dist and swap it out with yours..

Yes, the Autoparts store can test the TFI module.

The pick-up module can be checked with an ohmmeter. Most shop manuals will have the specs.

I m not 100% sure but i think its open closed, like points so if you ohm it you should have low resistance then infinite, or open circuit. If you have a test light you can clip it on the leads of the coil connector, it should flash. Steady on or steady off somthings wrong.
My coil connector corroded a few years back and my truck lost fire, when i stuck the probes from my meter in the top of the conector , evevything was fine, when i turned the connector over and metered the coil side, it was dead, one of the terminals was broken inside the body of the connector.
