Bypass the resistor (jump around it). See if it runs. Won't hurt the coil to test it for a few min. If it runs replace the resistor. Bet you a cold frosty one the resistor is OK.

"checks good until i get to resistor
no juice going in or out" If nothing IN, then it sounds to me like the problem is BEFORE you even get to resistor.

thanks JMOR....
i'll double check but i thought i had juice
on everything up to the resistor.
maybe i will start at coil and go back and see
where that leads...maybe bad connection on wire going in.
will continue when rain stops. thanks

H Cooke - i owe you a cold frosty one Smile and JMOR - looks like it WAS the connection before the resistor. the connection felt tight and secure but once i disconnected and cleaned and tighten back she fired....what causes connections to stop current ? rust ? thanks all

Dell says 'shiny and bright'...you'd be amazed what that will do. Sand em shiny...problems go away easy.
