Provided you find information for the same engine they all torque the same. An auto parts store can tell you the torque and pattern. Normally it's center out in a criss cross pattern.

Thanks for asking. Still no spark.
We have run the gambit. New distributor is in, The ICM will start my Vanagon. The coil will start my Dasher. Swapped out the brain to a known working one. New distr ...

Just for the sake of follow up I thought I would add this. The fuse panel was not the issue. The problem we believe is the Hall Sender pick-up inside the distributor. The piece on the inside of the wi ...

I agree with the previous post. Do you smell gas though? It could be lack of fuel or too much fuel and flooded.
The light coming on is also common with the Vanagons. I had one stop coming on after I ...

I don't know about jumping the positions but what about pulling the relay in the K spot and putting it up where you have the jumper and see what happens?

Thank you,

My son and I have been at this for a while now and getting nowhere. We have a 84 Vanagon and a 78 Dasher to verify some parts are good like the coil, battery, ICM, and wires. I have a feeling we have ...

Does anyone think I should delete this and start it over so I can have the correct information from the beginning?
I really hope to get this thing figured out this weekend.

Thank you,

It's been a long week.
I'm sorry for the confusion. My son has informed me that we have the 91 GL now not the 85.
My brain is not working either.
Being the Digifant I did unplug the idle stabilizer ...

Yes it's the 85, I have read and read here but found no solution.
This is my 7th rig and I have never encountered this problem.
We have stopped testing here because there is zero spark and I read th ...

It's was running fine and after exhausting the normal culprits we've got out the tester.

The 1990 is watercooled, the 82 is aircooled. Completely different engines and animals. It looks like the 90 has brown interior? If so this is the worst as far as withstanding wear goes. It does look ...

Drilling plastic is fine but it's a good idea to chamfer (sp) the edges to resist splitting. I made eyeglasses for 15 years and drilled plastic, polycarbonate, and glass lenses. I had a tool to smooth ...

My sender only shows down to about 1/3 tank and then up to about 3/4 tank. I don't want to waste money on Seafoam if the consensus is it will not help.
I know I should drop the tank and replace it bu ...
