No Spark on Thunderbird Sport in NW Ohio
I am new the the site and a proud new owner of a 2000 Thunderbird Sport.
It has around 10K miles and some bugs I'm trying to work out. Anyone in the NW Ohio (Toledo) or SE Michigan area that is willing and able to lend any expertise??
So far, I've gone through the carbs and now seem to have an intermittent issue with no spark. Still going through and looking at the normal culprits (coils, wires, pickup, igniter, alarm circuit?), but thought I would look for a local from the forum while I'm at it.
Based on what I've read on the forum so far, I am suspecting the igniter. When trying to start, it spins but does not even sputter. Checked #3 cylinder with an extra spark plug and no spark. I think the other two are the same, but will be checking. I am hoping I'm wrong about the igniter, since it started with no problems before disassebling and removing the carbs.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated! Thanks, Mike
