Hi,
I have a 1995 164 T.Spark and am having trouble with one of the coil/distributor things.
Basically, one end of one ignition lead has fused/corroded onto the coil connection. To make matters worse, the lead has now severed (internally) ensuring no spark. Anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this problem as, at £90+vat, I would rather not buy a new one.
Alternatively, is there a place one can purchase second hand coils? :confused:
One final question (pushing my luck I guess) but when do the twin sparks fire? :rolleyes:
Any help greatly appreciated.

Your best bet would be to source a second-hand spare from a breakers. It should be quite easy in the UK. THere are online searches for looking for parts.

Try: Breaking Yards

I assume that you are looking for the firing sequence... I found mine in my Alfa manual, it goes 1-4-2-3 (I think) on my boxer engine, and a quick search of Google brings up nothing for your car.
