Re: distributor insight
I havbe worked on the design and development of the large cap HEI at GM, YOU all havent. I also designed and build my opwn small-body HEI's, invented them, no degrees, just getting out and doing it. By the way, it seems you all have all sorts of degrees and education on electronics and ignition systems, as you all seem to know how to do it better than anyone else, just ask you..
flat tire, YOUR degrees, sir, please? I trust you are the most knowledgeable person in the universe, on everything and everybody, you always seem to go after those that actually do kno0w what they are doing.
On that "old Blaster", what does the sticker on the bottom of it say as a point of manufacture? If it is USA, it is a good Andover coil. Mexico, Pro-Bobbin, trouble, China, still trouble, but, all of you knew all that already, being the only experts on earth that know anything.
I work in the auto ignition industry, and fix what all of you tell others to do, which makes for some really bizarre problems.
Of course, the reluctor and main shaft cannot be bound up from emulsified grease, only the weights, right...GIVE IT A REST. How many of you see about 30 percent of the distributors sent to YOU for work, that the main shaft will not cleanly pull out of the body, locked up by the grease and other deposits on the main shaft that won't allow it to pull out of the bushings cleanly? Those aren't that bad, as you all know, it isn't that hard to push the shaft and upper bushing out with a press, because the grease buildup has locked the shaft onto the bushing hard enough to need pressing out of the body. Then, how many of you have wire brushed the greases off the shaft, then heated the bushing to get it to loosen enough to remove it from the shaft? Come on, tell it like it is, what YOU have done in the distributor rebuilding world. Especially YOU, flat tire.
Just how many of you on these boards actually work on distributors EVERY DAY, and fix the junk you all create with all the useless stuff you con people into using? Oh, what, NONE of you, I thought so.
Do all of you see at least a hundred busted Ignitors every year, blown up from too much feed voltage, no resistor, well, I didn't think so, but.......I DO.
