Good Spark, Bad Spark

Defender wont start again!!!! I have a great spark from the coil to the distributor and bad spark to the engine. I changed the cap and the rotor button and no luck. Any help you can offer would be greatly apperciated. Thank you for your help and time in advance.

Daniel

the fuel is reaching the motor. I hear the pump and the exhuast smells like it. The rotor and cap have been changed with parts from Lucas bought from Atlantic British and still a bad spark to engine. Anymore suggestions?

Having a similar issue, recurring saprk woes, new coils and rotors frequently..? I am OUT of ideas..

maybe the dizzy shaft is bouncing up/down, ruining rotors? worn gears, worn bearings somewhere? out of spec dizz shaft? Could an old/bad condenser have anything to do with this?

good luck, keep us informed.
