Make sure you have only about 8 volts going to it not a full 12. There is a resistor wire that should cut the voltage.

What are the advantages of an electronic ignition circuit?

Electronic ignition typically doesn't use a rotating cam and ignition points. So there is less mechanical wear involved. The voltage produced at the spark plugs tends to be higher and a little "cleaner," electrically speaking. An ignition advance mechanism would not be heeded if the design of the ignition module or "computer" were sophisticated enough.However, there is one major disadvantage. If there is an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) blast that takes out all sorts of electronic devices, such an ignition system would be destroyed. So after a major nuclear war, cars that use this likely won't run. However, if it has a standard points ignition, it can.

Would a win in a fight barracuda or a pirhanna?

Barracuda are salt water fish which means they live in the ocean and Pirhanna live in fresh water such as the Amazon so the two will never likely meet. Pirhanna are on average 6-10 inch fish while Barracuda can grow up to almost 6 feet long and 12 inches wide. they have large mouths full of sharp teeth while pirhanna have small mouths with sharp teeth. Pirhanna have a reputation as dangerous because they swarm in number to a kill, but an individual fish would only take a small chunk out of a Barracuda. A Barracuda on the other hand could probably gulp down most if not all of single Pirhanna at one time. My bet would have to be on the Barracuda.

What kind of dolphin eats a barracuda?

No dolphin would be foolish enough to swim near a barracuda. Dolphins, though quick, are not near as fast and agile as the barracuda when it comes to a sub-marine battle. And also, the dolphin does not have sufficient teeth to tackle a large fish. The barracuda, on the other hand, has next to razor sharp teeth which could make quick work of almost any mammal.

I have a 1994 that would stall. The battery cables were corroded. Any number of possibilities: Fuel pump, partially blocked fuel filter, electronic ignition problems, or any electronic component that fails after it's been running. A dead battery.
