I have just installed the Crane XR700 in my car. Like others who have
I could not get the provided brackets to work well. I finally used the
one-piece one, which
seems to position the optical sensor circumferentially very close to the
magnetic one, but leaves it out too far radially. I shimmed 1/8" which
gets it over the slotted
disk, but just barely. I was able to time it and the car now runs, but
kind of raggedly. That is,
it is missing at idle and at all speeds as nearly as I can tell.
In addition to the Crane installation I also replaced the seals and
bearings and cleaned
and greased the mechanical advance. I had a speed shop spin it up and
they said it
was producing approximately advance curve provided in the ROM.
I have double checked all injector connections and listened to each.
They are all clicking nicely.
I am also using a Crane PS20 coil (their recommendation) and the
ballast resistor. I tested it and measured resistances pretty close to
the Book, and also
close to the resistor that came with the Crane coil.
How should I proceed to diagnose this problem?
