If it has a distributor, it might be the pickup inside the distributor.
Bad coil? Bad distributor cap? Bad distributor rotor?
Distributor pickup coil resistance 140-180 ohms.
hey are located inside the distributor and function as the trigger for the ignition system to produce spark. The pickup coil monitors the rotation
No input voltage to the coil or the coil is bad. Check the distributor for issues and the wires.
Remove Distributor,remove drive gear,remove shaft,remove pickup coil.
I would replace the ignition module in the distributor.
The pickup coil in the distributor? !976 should be an HEI distributor. Take the cap off, unplug the wires going to the distributor, remove the rotor and the pickup coil is under the rotor and held in place with two screws.
Check the pickup inside the distributor and see if its OK. Do you have spark at the ignition coil? Check the wires. Or the cap and rotor assy.
It is inside the distributor and is more commonly known as a distributor pickup, HEI pickup, pickup coil, hall switch, or hall effect sensor. I hope that helps.
The B2600i does not have a pickup coil, it uses a hall effect sensor located inside the distributor to trigger spark. K6 Mazdatruckin.com
The coil charges with electricity, and as the reluctor hits the high point, it releases all the energy at once.
try to get a new ignition rotor
check pickup in the distributor
You could have a bad ignitor. It is located on the drivers side fender well. There is also still a good possibility that your ignition coil is bad, despite the fact that the coil resistance is checking out within specs. I would change the coil first; it's cheaper than the ignitor or the distibutor. If still no start and you have verified that the coil is getting voltage then it is the pickup coil in the distributor. Unfortunately, the pickup coil is not replaceable on its own. You will have to change the whole distributor to get a new pickup coil. Good luck.
remove the distributor cap remove the screws that attach the pick coil to the base of the distributor and replace in reverse order
you must remove the distributor, disassemble unit and replace pick up coil
Inside the distributor.
Often a pickup coil is mounted inside a distributor to detect the position of magnets on a star wheel. The hall effect switch can be part of the pickup coil or a separate solid state device immediately adjacent.

it does not run smoothly and not all plugs fire when supposed to Addition to above: No spark or intermittent spark, a problem that was fairly common back when distributors had vacuum advances was that one of the wires going to the pickup coil (pole piece) would break from the back and forth movement of the pickup as the vacuum advance would move it to control the timing, symptoms would be no start or that it would start and when you put a load on the engine and the vacuum dropped the vacuum advance would start to move the pickup coil, the broken wire would open the circuit and the spark would die.To check this problem was fairly simple by removing the cap & rotor and tugging lightly on the wires where they go into the pickup coil/pole piece, if one of the wires was broken you could see it and knew you had to replace the pickup coil which GM called a pole piece (magnetic pickup coil and pole piece are the same thing).
The computer maybe fubar(no good)? have you checked the plug wires distributor cap and rotor? could be the distributor its self or possably the pick up coil
The spark travels from the coil to the distributor then from the distributor to the plugs. So if you have spark going into the distributor but not coming out to the plugs, I would blame the distributor cap and rotor being at fault.
If it has a distributor it has to come out and be completely disassembled //its under the rotor!!!
The coil wire runs from the coil to the center of the distributor cap.The coil wire runs from the coil to the center of the distributor cap.
