Re: Mopar Performance electronic distributor puling



Mine does the same thing and I swapped it back to the old points and it ran fine. I read somewhere that the two wires from the pickup can be swapped causing issues. I made my own harness The diagram I used does not show the orientation of the pickup wires. I have not tried swapping mine back yet due to knee surgery but I'm going to try it and let you know.

Installed a new Mopar Performance electronic distributor last night.  Starts and idles fine but going down the road while holding steady throttle, the engine pulses up and down every few seconds.  Almost like you are giving it more and less throttle.  The amp meter is also erratic now.

 

Per the instructions the blue wire is connected to the ballast resister ignition feed side.  Black wire to neg side of coil.  And timing to 5 BTDC per the instructions.

I did notice the reluctor and pick-up are not parallel for the .008 gap.  All the same gaps as you spin it, and I did set the closest point to .008. 

Any ideas what the problem is?   Is there another vacuum advance type distributor to consider for electronic ignition?  Pertronix makes one I see that is an all-in-one unit, any other makers for 318 Poly?

I put the original point distributor back on for now, and it runs fine.

Thanks,

Ric
