Can anyone help on this problem? Been trying to run in my rebuilt XR2 but I've tried to get it out four times now and it just wont get past 2/3000 revs.
I've gone thru all the coils of which four were cracked so I replaced them.
Then on checking the voltage to the switch boxes I noticed only 60/70 volts on the blue low speed stator wires and sod all on the red high speed wires.
So now after sending off to America for a new stator from CDI and replacing that, it's made no bloody difference at all! Still no voltage on the red wires. I only have a maplins automotive multi meter but I'm thinking it's not that. What else do I test/ change? Thought of switch boxes but surely there should be voltage to them straight from the stator? Trigger? voltage regulator? summer's passing by and I'm getting more p****d off!
call me on 07702 958175 i can sort it
