My 300H was running great. Better than it ever has-maybe. A mix of 118 Octane gasoline with some 92 octane, set to all correedct tuneup specs, new J12Y plugs etc etc.
Then it quit.
It wouldn’t start, but would fire occasionally, sometimes down the exhaust. I focussed on ignition . Timing was spot on, dwell was at 37 degrees, timing light flashed with regularity while cranking and I had a spark at the plugs (tested with a new plug). (I thoughtthe spark looked weak and replaced the coil).
I also tested the fuel pump and both it and the electric pump could pump plenty of fuel.
My mechanic lent me his K-D No. 2632 Portable Ignition System along with a can of NAPA brake cleaner. If a good shot of brake cleaner down the rear carb didn’t work it was an ignition problem, not carbs he said. The brake cleaner didn’t work, so I moved on to the tool.
The tool has a ht cable to replace the one from the coil to the distributor, then two wires to the battery and an off-on switch.
She started right up.
I then replaced my treasured NOS Mopar condenser I had bought on E Bay when I had gone on a buying spree for higher quality ignition parts. I replaced it with an AutoZone condenser and all is well now.
That tool is worth its weight in gold and well worth the $80 they cost.
