If your spark is bright blue then it isn't weak, if it is weak it may not be the coil, it could be the ignitor

Get a gauge with a range of up to 100 psi and fit it to a "T" piece. Most gauges that are cheap to buy are 1/4" male connect, bottom or back entry, thread is probably NPT in the states. get a ht/f/ht connector. That is a "T" piece with a hose tail each side and a female threaded connection in the mi...

Its a G180W. you should see that on the block low down on left hand side near the front. Piazza,s had the 1949cc version very early on but were phased out in early 83. It is probably ex a gemini and the noise at start up probably isn't your chain. It is more likely to be all the cam gear as it gets ...

The idle screw is piss easy to get to, don't confuse the idle screw with the throttle stop screw, don't touch that one. First thing is make sure you have free play on the cable and that the cable quadrant is hard down on the stop screw which you HAVE NOT tampered with we hope. If you wander round to...

Bugle you are correct, for turbo cars (JR120 and YB) that is true, my mistake. The non turbo JR130 has a different rack and the boots on those are the same both sides. The part number provided was the correct number for the JR120/YB boot kit. Universal boots can be used but they won't have the conne...

This image may help. Item 8 is what Isuzu call a strut bar and may be what you call a radius arm. The rubber bushes item 9 (4 required) are as I said no longer available from Isuzu and no aftermarket ones around either, apart from special manufacture or my last known set in captivity. http://isuzupi...

left and right rack boots are identical, isuzu part number is 8-94414554-0 for a complete kit for both sides, don't know if still available from GM but worth a try. I have one kit only left now and a few second hand boots. Not sure what you mean about radius arm. If you mean front strut bar bushes t...

Thats cool, best you can get, I have a 1987 Impulse manual as well, probably the same edition as yours but some things may be different if your car is an 86 model sold in 87

Don't lose focus, the temp sensor on top of the manifold is for temp gauge only and not relevant to starting. The one under the manifold is for signalling the ecu but again has no bearing on starting. Same applies to the one in the bottom tank of the radiator. None have anything to do with start cir...

No need for that just make sure they are all clean and tight on bare metal. I once had one that wouldn't start and I suspected fuel delivery, I pulled the injector rail back just enough to see if it was firing fuel, and being super clever I left them pointing into the manifold holes so that gas woul...

Thats a good point make sure metal on block is bare and on some models the earth cable also bolts to the body so check that as well. If it has a separate earth to the body check it, the little earth wires up on the firewall to valve cover are not good enough for main engine to body ground. It is a g...

We all got that JOB problem, except those refugees the governemts give a house, car and income to without working. A bad or missing ground wire can certainly stop things happening. Check the security of the ground wires on the front lower plenum. There are two or three wires that all have to be firm...

I guess I don't need to say that if you have fuel pressure, spark, air delivery and compression it WILL start providing everything is happening at the right time. Sort out/check the mechanical side first, it isn't variable. So compression check. Cam timing check, again it isn't variable. Ignition ti...
