Hey guys

Spent some cash on my Ignition system in the 1990 Mav, Iv'e done Plugs, Leads, Pertronix kit, Rotor Button and Dizzy cap and it still has an intermittent misfire on idle and lower revs.
I'm about to take a few liters of ULP and a Zippo too it.
I don't know what to do next, on a brighter note it's running considerably better than it was so I'm a lot happier than i was with it just over it still missing.

Cheers guys for any help.
Deneo.

set the timing slightly more advanced as well. Failing that, park it up in a dark spot at night time, get the engine running and look under the bonnet to see if there are any small sparks getting around in the engine bay. My mate did this and found that there was a small fault with a connection and the current was jumping. Fixed that and misfire no more. Worth a shot if you are considering torching it!

Also have you bypassed the resistor on your coil so it gets the full voltage?

I connected the Red wire on the pertronix to the ballast resistor should i wire it to the coil instead?

Yeah that's what i thought, It's connected to the ballast resistor. This is really giving me the ****s, Spent $350+ on ignition and it's still missing noticeably.

Doesn't seem to Misfire while driving, Or when i'm stationary in drive or reverse with my foot on the brake if that's any indicator.

Just dropping out/Missfiring, Can hear it through the exhaust and feel it like when i'm leaning against the bullbar. Only every 10-15 seconds maybe
