 EDIT TO MY STORY - WHAT WOULD CAUSE 

1T AND 2T NOT TO FIRE ALONG WITH 1B ONLY FIRING OCCASIONALLY  4T NO FIRE ???

BUT HERE IS THE REST OF STORY

 

Engine running bad, 1t good 1b not firing to dead to firing intermittent , cylinders 2 and 3 firing very well

2t good 2b good.    3t good 3b good

4t good 4b intermittent to good to very intermittent 

912uls 172 hours, disconnect p leads and taped off, tests - gen coil charging coil, trigger coil readings, gapped @ 13 thous, used compressed air to blow out coil area, also checked ignition primary and secondary as per test procedure, also spark plugs,  caps, secondary wires tests all in spec,  2 grounds on intake and third ground cleaned, all good plugs, using timing light

Just by chance I ohmed gray wire to coil pack and got 138.5 ohms, I pulled and replaced each spark plug wire when I got to 1b the ohms went back to infinity,  that's when I changed 1b 2 b coil as stated lower in story 

Another startup  1b not firing  to intermittent 

4 b intermittent to intermittent to good

    Reversed vertical 1t intermittent 1b occasional firing.     4t dead 4b dead

     3rd test still Reversed vertical 

1t dead 1b intermittent 4t occasional firing

4b dead

     Vertical plugged back to normal

1t intermittent 1b intermittent 4t no spark

4b intermittent 

      Test run at night no archin , reading then

1t dead 1b occasional spark 2t dead 4t dead

 

     Installed new coil for 1b - 2b 

1t dead 1b dead d 4t occasional 4b occasional 

On primary wires, ac volts .011 DC volts .08 to

.016

   I'm detailing the best that I can w 2 peeps, prop and wind, I know some of this probably makes no sense,  but trying hard to get this right, any and all help appreciated 

One day the engine started and ran perfectly and all cylinders were firing for about 15 minutes then started running rough, my timing light showed those non firing cylinders again ! So packed cd boxes with ice, no help same problem

    Hello,

    I think you are on the wrong way because justifi your analysis and actions, to find your problem you have to come back to the basis What is the problem with my engine? when did it happen? in what conditions and with witch parameters? can I reproduce it? after rply to this questions start to research but without final analyz but with logical, don't change any thing before you're sure the replaced part is failed otherly you vill build your isue by yourself... I can understand that it's not easy to hear but after many decade training technicians to the diagnosis I've learn that us technicians need a lot of humility to go back from a dead end research and try new one without relations with the first one... some time a bit of skizophrenia can be an help.

    with fortitude you'll solve the problem

    Rgds
