Mein Auto: rescued bmw's
i am not aware of any sort of resistor in the o2 sensor circuit. that corrosion, however, would add quite a bit of additional resistance in the circuit, so i would address that.

as for the vid, are you getting fuel pulse?? you can modify a regular 194 bulb to use as a noid light. i also have an led that i could play with to see if it would be brighter when lighting up, but have not gotten to that point yet. been busy.

will bring one with me to bfe, along with my additional 'tech toys' for diagnostics and give you guys a show and tell.

and tacos.

and y'all get to see cadence in person, too!!

but back to the no start, it *sounds* like a crank sensor signal is not getting to the dme. the distributor is 'mechanical', so it will create and collapse a magnetic field, inducing a spark. this will simply occur at 'base timing' since the dme is not controlling the advance. this is why i suggest checking for fuel pulsse with any vehicle that is equipped with a dizzy.
