Got it. My knowledge of Ford's is about nil so I was trying to pick something up.

It's not worse than GM. God, what hasn't this Impala done. Half of it has been their shitty plastic intakes.

@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonI'm tempted to take a torch to an old 13mm wrench20:26:16
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersonand put a 90 degree bend in it20:26:33
@venant:matrix.orgvenantthat is the trick... 20:29:16

@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonSo...21:14:05
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonThere's nothing wrong with the dist, I just wired it wrong21:14:10
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonThe hall sensors on the TFI distributors don't put out a voltage, they have a changing resistance to ground21:14:33
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersonso you need a pull up resistor, not a diode :/21:14:42
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonSeems to work fine now21:14:44
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersonjust have to put it back together and try to fire it up21:14:55
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonHmm22:03:02
* @danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Peterson trying to put the cap and wires back on the distributor...22:03:20
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersonhttps://www.therangerstation.com/tech_library/diagrams/FiringOrder6.gif22:06:48
* @danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Peterson realizes he has no idea where the camshaft is in relation to the dist... 22:18:26
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersonguess I got to pull spark plugs now :/22:34:18
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonOK, dist back in, I think the timing's right23:30:23
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersoncranking the engine makes the ECM fire, so that's progress23:30:42
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Petersonjust need to fix the starter and get the intake back on23:30:57

@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonI found out what's making the grinding noise...00:23:44
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonThe flywheel is all chewed up :/00:23:47
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonBut as long as it cranks fine I guess it can stay00:23:55
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonI really don't want to pull the trans again00:24:03
@danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel PetersonI'll shim the starter back on as best I can00:24:18
