i checked the resistance on the coil which was correct (i know that isnt %100, but for now i am avoiding throwing money at it).
i dont have a bently manual, i do have a haynes and an ETM which i am learning to read wire diagrams from.
i did check the condition of the wires, roter, distributor, contacts, etc; i did not check the pin for the cps (i keep forgetting). since i work full time and go to school full time i only have weekends. and now i have a new list. thank you and i will keep you informed. thank you.
