H.e.i. Pt.1

1) First off, do you know of any books or websites or even people that i could go to that describe the H.E.I. distributor in great detail----let's put it this way in, if you will, "nauseating" detail? Detail so profuse that it would actually get boring and you would need a break from it, even though the subject of ignition (i feel so at least) is fascinating.

2) How to test the coil?

3) How to test the module?

4) Basically, how to diagnoise/test the whole unit.

Re: H.e.i. Pt.1

Thank you. That is pretty damn detailed; If i can't solve the problem with that, then the problem will perhaps never be solved.

Why is it (this is something i noticed) that the jeep people tend to be the through ones? Go figure. Just some more automotive psychology to think about.

Re: H.e.i. Pt.1

Jeep guys need to process and maintain a good knowledge base, because when something breaks they may not be near civilization, let alone a computer or repair shop...

Re: H.e.i. Pt.1

What is the real reason for setting initial timing at 2000rpm or higher?

Does vacuum advance have anything to do with this?

Not sure where you got that, initial timing is the amount of advance you set before the mechanical curve starts which is typically between 900-1200 rpm. For most applications you set initial at idle rpm. You never use vacuum advance when setting initial advance.
