Re: Weather/coil performance

Something must be drastically wrong. Perhaps a connection came loose somewhere or something is shorting. The weather alone would not cause this. I suspect something happened to it in the last week. Recheck all the wiring.

I think if it were reheated to 75 degrees it would still not work. Some part might have failed too... Might as well start checking everything...

How do different types of weather effect coil performance? I ask because my coil was working fine last week when it was around 75 degrees. But the temp has now dropped to a nice normal 30.

I can get the spark size that the coil produced but only when the spark is going into a grounded object. As opposed to the operation last week when it would just discharge into the air. Not even a small spark into the air.

I am guessing the problem is either the temp or humidity because nothing else has changed since I last used it. Just been sitting on the table. I tried re-tuning it to see if that would help but it tuned at just about the same tap point. So i don't know.

Many Thanks
