Re: HELP! Crank but no start... (petrhejl)

The hall sender (distributor) and crank reference pin have to trigger at the exact same time, so if the distributor timing is off by even a little, you will have no spark. The proper timing/rotor alignment procedure is detailed in the Bentley. Another possible option is that the hall sender picked right now to fail on you. Also, be sure to check the plugs themselves for good contact where they meet the coil and hall sender. Those little bastards have caused a few head-scratchers around here.
