  1. Re: Pertronix Ignitor: reliability & suitability

    The common Ignitor module design is many years old. There is also Ignitor II and Ignitor III. I believe that these later two designs have addressed the overheating problem. However, a side effect...

    My wife's daily driver is a 2012 Fit. It is a little old lady car with under 50k miles on it. We are adding miles even slower now that we have retired. I anticipate the spark plugs on it will be...

    Re: Electrical Troubleshooting Advice Needed

    That 11.7 at the fuse box is not a good sign and I agree with the others that you need to clean all the connections.

    I have used small wire "bottle brushes" on a cordless drill for the female...

    Re: alternator eater

    I agree with Kurt that your car has to have a short somewhere. The brown wires shouldn't get hot in normal use.

    11.8V out of an alternator says it is not charging. Does the red charge warning...

    Re: Honda spark plugs

    I would say this information is for future reference... but it probably isn't since you only have 150k miles on a 17 year old car.

    The speedo cable is certainly something to check. I have never seen a broken cable continue to drive the gauge but I see how it could be possible. It would be a lot less expensive thing to fix than...

    Re: Spedo reading low

    Bouncing needles are often associated with a cable stick/slipping. The normal progression from there is NOT starting to read low so I doubt this is a cable or dirty gauge issue.

    Nonetheless, if...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Fuel Guage Sending Unit

    It sounds like you have all the grounds you need without adding more.

    TR2/3/3A Re: Fuel Guage Sending Unit

    Assuming this is the gauge system that does not use the voltage stabilizer... both the gauge and the sending unit have to be connected to the same ground.

    Re: how to have music/radio when driving

    I have yet to hear a radio when at speed in a British car. However, several people have told me that the answer is to fit a pair of Miata seats with the speakers built into the headrest.

    For the Mini Cooper -S, the EN40 crank was/is the one to have. They are supposed to have superior toughness. I assume the same would be true for the Spridget crank.

    The two problems are probably only related because the car sat for a while.

    When you turn the key to the run position can you hear the fuel pump running or is there silence?
