You may know this already - to simulate the hall sensor:
With ignition on measure the voltage at the 3 pins of the connector in the harness that goes to the hall connector on the distributor. One should be at ground, one at about 12 volts and the other floating. If you connect a wire to the floating pin and touch the other end of the wire to the 12V, then the ground, then the 12V,. etc you will be sending the trigger signal to the ignition advance computer. That should produce a spark.
The diagram is in post # 52 of this thread - http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/mila...ml#post1146168

Picking up a "known, good distributor" tomorrow. We'll see if that helps this weekend.

PS, coming up on the one-year anniversary. Sure would be cool to get this thing running.

Hall Effect sensor itself is pretty simple. Practically passive if not for 12v side. Most likely connector bad. Or ignition module. Signal is 5V.

Before installing it connect the 3 wire connector, turn on the ignition and spin the distributor. You should get sparks and hear the injectors clicking.

Excellent advice. I will plan to do that.

Thanks for the other information, I didn't realize that it was kicking out a 5v signal.

My office partner is trying to increase the pressure to get this thing going. I told her that I want to drive it up to Olympia, Washington, for the AROC convention in August. So she bet me $100 that I wouldn't make it...she's made bets like that with me before, and so far she has always collected. (I guess she knows me better than I a want to think, but after 20 years, I expect she does.) (Edit, too kill any suspense...she collected. LOL)

I told her that if I don't start it this weekend, I'd take her bet.

That was "as received."

After a year:

I keep telling myself "we're making progress."

If I'd only known..,

If you’re looking for speaker grilles, I’d say you’re in good shape.

I still love those F40 wheels.

Pete, frankly, my thoughts on how to finish it keep changing.

It was originally going to be a "boy racer" for my son. Thankfully he lost interest.

Then I was going to do a full blown big time restoration, but I'm just not built that way.

So, at this point, I'm stuck in between and a bit paralyzed by indecision.

It's a shame, I walk by it everyday, and I can hear it whispering "what about me, when can I get back in the shop..."

Not yet, but sometime this year.

WE HAVE FIRE!!!

Weak, not yet sustainable, idle. But combustion is happening. We're changing out the 3 month old putrid fuel, and a broken spark plug, and then we'll see if it will sustain an idle. It's amazing how quickly fuel goes bad today.

Nonetheless, big victory!
