It seems like there are a thousand different things that can go wrong with these. I have a problem that nobody else seems to have. I installed the pert. II and flamethrower II coil. Easy, quick, done in 10 Minutes. Stock distributor. Hard starting, died at idle. Thought about it for a bit, decided to check timing, It had retarted to about 4 deg. Set timing back to 9 deg. Still very hard to start, I have to give it alot of gas, about 5 pedal pumps, and stay on the pedal when cranking. After it fires up, it idles fine with the timing correct. How do I cure the hard starting? With the points, it fires right up. Do I need to reduce/increase the module gap? It is set at .30 with the included feeler guage. Do I need to return it and go back to points? Should I check the spark on each plug?
