My new electronic dissy has arrived as I am finally removing the computer
out of the VK.Is it just basically red wire pos+ and black wire neg-coil hook up.
Cheers all.

Thanks for that booze
I've got her up and running and damn it's been so long (Torrie Days) that I can't remember
to set the timing in park or in first,maybe someone can shed some light
Big Cheers to all.

hilux
i used to drive it and advance it up as much as possible with out it pinging . Flaten it up a nice steep hill, otherwise disconnect and block up the vac advance and set it to 6 degree with the timing light idling in neutral will be all right, if nothing has changed where ever the idle speed is right should be pretty close assuming it was running all right b4. the module usually ends up pretty close to parallel with the oil pump usually where I start .

Regoed and test drive went good but....this is an old problem not really affecting driving
If I quickly step on and off the gas pedal in drive there is am almighty Bang coming from the back somewhere.
Does this sound like a diff?
Wondering if someone out there in fantastic commodores land can shed some light or point me in the right direction.
Thanking all in advance

Just out of curiosity I took the est computer box apart
and It's a wonder the old girl was actually running at all
Looked like a lot of frying has gone on in there
Down to the metal recyclers it went
Good Riddance,sorry Holdens.

Where did you get the new gear from? Did you get a new coil to go with the new electronic distributor?
