I was going with a neighbor to look at this car for his son. The car is in decent shape but the front doors were rusting and it has a not so friendly ant colony in the drivers seat right now. The owner is an electrician and doesnt know much about cars. He had tried to fix it but couldnt get it running.
We turned down the sale because it was more work than my friends son could handle. The owner then asked me if I could fix it to get it running for him. I told him maybe. The car is cis basic with a points ignition system. He had replaced the timing belt, coil, distributor cap, rotor, plugs and wires. The info I am looking for is the coil wiring.
The owner tried to start the car and one of the wires off the coil melted. I am not sure what color it was he thought it was brown and purple.. I am wondering if it was black and red. I do not have a bentley for the dashers nor do I have much experience with cis basic. I have tuned and worked on cis lambda several times. I just wanted to see if anyone had any wiring info on the coil wires and some input on tuning the cis basic before I get involved.
Here is a link to the car.
The car is sitting on a lot of a condemed house under a tarp right now. Let me know what you guys think.
