i have changed my running points and condensor system with the accuspark electronic ignition sytem. i can only get a baby spark out of the plugs(yes i checked more than one.)ihave 12v to the coil,the coil has 3.8 ohms and i have ran through the trouble shooting guide a couple times and i still cant find anything that would cause such a weak spark. anyone have an idea to throw at me.anyone have any experience with these units.thanks, my tr6 is a 73 model(i'm running a non-ballast system in it)and its original color is british racing MALLARD BLUE green.

Are the plugs clean and what do have them gapped at ?

Ken, thanks for asking. i am up and running! finally.after many hours of frustration and dissapointments,here's what i did.i put the points back in.tried both coils that i have. i went with the heavy-duty lucas one.it looks like it came out of a truck.i pulled out all the plugs,cleaned them,re-gapped and tested them each with different gaps until i have monster spark. some were .025 some took a little more. only #3 i didnt get a huge spark on. then i flooded the SU's with 'petrol'and it lit right up. so then i took the points out,put...no,i refitted the accuspark pickup in the dizzy and restarted the 6. this time the carbs were puffing blue flames everytime i revved it up.advanced the timing a couple times and the popping went away. so now the old guy idled back down pretty smoothly and all is well.the next thing i am going to do is ditch those dern champion plugs and get some bosches. i am happy with the accuspark now. tomorrow,maybe put the seat in and take it for a spin.

I really do like Champion RN12YC for pretty much stock engines. .025 with points and at least .030 with Hall effect ignitions.

Or NGK's, they worked for me. I keep two sets, one in a six hole block of wood on my bench for comparison purposes.
