replace the defective coil pack(s)~

re-establish the connection between the black 1/0 cable and the frame it bolts to with a coarse wirebrush and sure the battery is newer than which the thing will stop taking a charge ten percent per year~

What about your head are you using the old one? Has it been checked for cracks or valve seating properly and a compression check? Email me if you can
