    Marc reported your Bosch module DOA.

    If your Bosch module is indeed dead, you've got two choices:
    1) source another Bosch module
    2) install a different ignition module (Duraspark, GM, MSD, etc)

    If you decide to run a GM module, Kolin Brown (kbrown84) can help you wire it up (he mentions running a GM module in post #76: http://www.dmctoday.com/showthread.p...ll=1#post36016)
    I seem to remember some owners on Talk running GM modules as well. I'm just not well versed enough on GM to help you myself.

    If you decide to run Duraspark I can use your dead module to make a plug & play adapter like this (I need pins from the dead module to make the DeLorean harness end):

    An owner named Jim in Louisiana temporarily wired a Duraspark module with quick connects then sent his dead Bosch module up here for me to make the adapter pictured.

    Actually, I wired Jim's module up for him until the adapter could be made.

    If Bill isn't using his ballast resistor, he could get a c-note for it on eBay.

    I sure wish my salt water submerged kjet parts could grab the same cash that is posted for....

    My plans of eventually going back to kjet are an example of plans that were changed (elminated) due to hurricane sandy.

    Oh well , it's a carbed life for me. I'll always be one of the misfits I guess....
