Re: Water out of spark plugs hole.

BigM
Have you tried using a large screwdriver on the flywheel teeth? ;) Try moving it both ways. You will get a lot of leverage at that point and it's a little easier than laying on your side.
Good Luck :mrgreen:

Re: Alternator / Ignition / Ballast resistor questions from a dummy

BigM This is the wiring diagram for the 4 pin ECM. It shows the ballast resister is only used for the coil. Pin #3 is not used. On the 5 pin ECM pin #3 is feed from the 5.0 ohm side of the dual ballast resister. On both ECM's Pin #1 is feed from the ignition on side of the ignition switch at full ba...

Re: Alternator / Ignition / Ballast resistor questions from a dummy

BigM Food for thought. 8-) The original 5 pin ignition modules needed a ballast resister in order to reduce the voltage to the unit the newer 4 pin do not. They run on 12 volt. The old two ballast resister system was used to reduce the voltage to the module and the coil. If you switch to a four pin ...
