[v12-engine] CEI, Amplifier Rebuild-83 VDP

Hi All, I have just read the Book on rebuilding the amp and with very
limited electrical background and a good voltmeter that I’m not yet fully
fluent with can someone tell me in simple DIY terms how to check the amp,
BTW right now my distribor has no reluctor, so I wonder if I can test the
amp. I have priced the GM-HE module here in Canada from a GM dealer it is
$70.00 CDN the part # they gave me is …10482820, The automotive chain here
is Canadian Tire and they do not have the module meaning I will have to
check a jobber and they always want to know the application so I have to
come up with the GM/model/year/etc can anyone help here. Radio Shack has a
10A noise filter for $23.00 CDN part number 2700051, anyone know if this
will work. Now for the white globb with 2 leads (ECU/Tach) how do I test it
(the Book instructions are advanced for me) and can I get this white globb
somewhere. BTW anyone have an extra thingy for the CEI distributor. Last
item, my rotor now turns and snaps back in to position with the sound of
something like the breach on a 303. I polished the base and bottom side of
weights then lubed with a product from Kleen-Flo called Tef-Lube 2000, it
states it will work in the -34C to + 315C range. Thanks Terry Pegler Canada

This was used on nearly all GM cars from about '74 thru the early 80’s. Tell
'em you need an ignition module for a 1978 Olds Delta 88 with a 350 V8, VIN
code “R”. That’ll get you what you need. The old part number, if you need
it, was 1875990.

Good luck,

That’s the one you want. Why not get the GM one?

The automotive chain here

is Canadian Tire and they do not have the module

Then they’re idiots if they work on any GM cars at all. That part # is the
most common one.

check a jobber and they always want to know the application so I have to

You must have some pretty incompetent or surly parts guys…

1976 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 350

Or just about any mid to full size GM with a six or eight cylinder engine
pre-81 compuetr controlled.

It’s the basic GM HEI four prong module. I would buy the one from the GM
dealer.

Turn engine over on starter. If you have spark, amp is OK. If not,
might as well replace GM HEI module and see if it works then.

BTW right now my distribor has no reluctor, so I wonder if I
can test the amp.

Uhhhh, it does make it more difficult. I understand some auto parts
shops have a machine that will test it – but I dunno if they get it
up to engine compartment temperatures while testing it.

What’s that, about $5 US?

Work for what? Getting the static out of your radio?

Now for the white globb
with 2 leads (ECU/Tach) how do I test it (the Book instructions are
advanced for me) and can I get this white globb somewhere.

It’s just two resistors, a 6K and a 10K. You can buy those at Radio
Shack, make your own white gob from silicone sealer. Does the tach
work? That means one is OK. Do the injectors work? That means the
other is OK.

BTW anyone
have an extra thingy for the CEI distributor.

Replace with metal washer, as described in Book.

Last item, my rotor now
turns and snaps back in to position with the sound of something like
the breach on a 303.

That’s how it’s supposed to sound.

Tee Pee,
I purchased the module from R.P.M. automotive out here in Alberta
for $32. Which I think is about $680 U.S. Jeb!–

I was in a GM dealer with my old module once in Victoria BC and the guy
behind the counter seemed very experienced but he said he had never seen one
with the #466 part designator on it. Wasn’t there a discussion a while back
about the module being a one off by GM for heavy duty high frequency
situations?

PS I would never trust Canadian tire as far as I could throw
them…_____________________________________
