    Got it fixed. Turned out to be a ground on the distributor and the timing was off 180 degrees. Now in the process of restoring the fuel injection system.

    I don't have an answer. I still have points with

    an MSD unit on my 76. I think it must be in your wiring. Did you ask the Petronix Tech Engineer? Have you done any wire tracing?

    No Spark 3.0si

    I'm in the process of converting my 1976 3.0si to electronic ignition. I pulled the distributor, installed the Petronix kit, reinstalled the distributor, changed the coil and I now have no spark coming out of the coil. I went back and tried the old coil and still nothing. I ran a hot wire to the positive wire on the Petronix and no spark at the plugs.
    I check all the fuses (all were fine) but am thinking there may be relay that's bad? The car ran (barely - due to some vacuum
    issues)before I started.

    Any ideas on what may be going on, or how better to diagnose them would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks - Scott
