79 ex-MOD 109 2.25L Dead Ignition
Got my 79 towed out to my folk's house the other day. This thing has the most reliable 2.25L petrol I've ever seen..well, until I intervened. 20 degrees for two weeks? Pull the choke, and she starts right up.
So, I started her up, pulled her up on the rollback. Got there, rolled it off the tow truck in neutral - dead in all key positions.
No red charge light. Now, I know it wasn't the tow guy - he just secured the tires on the rig, and I followed him. I rolled the truck off without it running, and like a doof, I didn't unlock the steering. So, I think that's it. I must've jiggered something in the steering column.
We could get her to turn with my Discovery jumper cables hooked up. She'd start to fire and die.
I wasn't sure if some kind of freak other issue popped up, so that's why I tried the jumper cables. When holding the starter, it would act like it's running. Didn't do this much, as I didn't want to fry the starter.
Hopefully I didn't dork something up. Any advice is appreciated.
