First time post here so be nice...[img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]

Anywho... I just picked up an '88 Tooper for $100

Overall in good shape except for one driveability concern.

Sometimes it starts and runs fines, other times it is a normal crank no start. Furthermore, when it does start and run normally, it will eventually, within say 10 minutes, stall and not re-start.

This is the reason I was able to buy this so cheaply.

My diagnoses found that during the crank no starts there was no spark. Digging deeper I found no pulse to the coild. All this lead to replacing the CAS (crank angle sensor). However, I was only able to find the CAS sold with the dist.

So cool... r+r the dist and I'm done. NOT![img]smileys/smiley7.gif[/img]

Now I can't get the thing started at all.

So I pulled the dist, set the crank timing mark at 12deg BTC and stabbed the dist so the rotor points to #1

Still no start.

I tried several different combinations for cap/wire combos but still have a no start.

Is there a computer re-learn method or something?[img]smileys/smiley5.gif[/img]
