just helped my buddy do this conversion tonight on his 82 22r. Everything seems to work except for the fact that his truck is really hard to start. I noticed that if i pull the coil wire out of the top of the coil about 3/4 of and inch to let the spark jump to the coil wire, his truck will start up immediatly. then when i put the wire back in it runs great until he shuts it off. The only thing that i know is that maybe it is because he has no resistor on the coil and it calls for an external ballast resistor. could that be the problem?
Thanks for replying.have you opened the dizzy up and checked for corrosion and checked the rotor and cap?
can you read? did you even try reading the thread or do you just want someone to reply to you?When I did my conversion to a carburator I left the 22re wiring harness in..can I still do the mod?
