Seems I remember jrichker talk about losing spark at the cap with full coil power, a weak spark may not 'walk' as far but I don't see where you have replaced the cap.

I would like to thank everyone that stuck with me through my troubled times with my 92 LX. I have finally gotten it running. I have learned many valuable lessons from this group. How to test everything you need to test for trouble shooting. As it wound up, my most valuable lesson was not to use cheep parts. Use OEM. After troubleshooting, it came down to the coil and possibly the pickup. I had changed both along with the TFI and still resulted in a no run condition. So I ordered a Motorcraft DG-470 coil and a 12127A distributor from LMR. After the transplant, I turned the key and it started right up. No cranking over and over, just started. It was a great sound.
So again, Thank you to all that put in their $.02 to $100 worth of advice. In the end, it worked.

Hi,
Very good! And I’m perfect time for summer, too! Did you note the fee for diagnostic assists leading to pre Memorial Day weekend repairs?lol
Glad to hear!

I’m sure the fee would be worth it. I still have to put the rest of the car back together and then get a new top put on. At least now I can move it to make room for my other car. Have a great weekend. Stay in touch.
