It appears I am on a roll recently.We had some actually crappy climate so I used to be form of caught right here and searching for stuff to do.Labored some on the motorbike engine I am constructing for my good friend Paul. Again to start with of the winter he gave me his spouse’s previous 2000 Chevy S10 choose up truck in change for me placing collectively a motor for this 1975 Yamaha RD350 he is constructing.The truck wants however used vans begin at 3500 bucks and for that you just get one thing not significantly better than this one so I determine I can repair all of it up and find yourself forward. It was operating okay so I used it a bit then at some point it misplaced energy.I put in new spark plugs  but it surely nonetheless solely ran on 2 cylinders.purchased new plug wires and put in them with no change.Then I purchased new coils and nonetheless had no luck so I used to be pondering it might be a foul gas injection system or the motor might be shot. Considered it lengthy and onerous and checked out new motors.I might do this for 1900 bucks and nonetheless be manner forward . One afternoon between rain storms I pulled out the brand new spark plugs to do a compression take a look at.To my shock quantity 2 and three cylinders weren’t firing in any respect.The plugs had been in as new situation.So,I did the compression take a look at and the motor is okay and I did some analysis .Discovered that the two & 3 cylinders fireplace on one coil and 1 and 4 fireplace on the opposite.I additionally learn that solely two issues could cause each cylinders on the identical coil to not fireplace, a foul coil(mine are new) and an issue with the ignition management module .Then extra studying gave me attainable causes for this failure.I checked the wiring and it was all good with no corrosion on any of the plugs so it needed to be the module itself .Received a brand new one ordered and put it in ,hit the important thing and it runs GREAT ! so now it is on to a brand new exhaust system ,new shocks ,and an entire brake system overhaul . Like I stated,they go for 35 hundred and up after which they want work too so with all this work I am doing I will find yourself with an excellent little truck for round 2 grand.I am a cheerful camper ! So glad that I took a pair days off from the truck work and did one other portray .I name this one ” Early Spring Thaw” It is oil on canvas 18  X 24 .
