OK, this has happened to me before, but this time I am stumped... It is an 81zxt, it is not getting a spark, it has a new (used) computer, it is getting fuel, new plugs, cap, rotor etc. It has about 100 psi compression when cold (doesn't run to do warm check), there is 10v at the coil.. I checked the coil last time this happened and it was fine, I don't think that it is the ignigter either. If I crank it over nothing will happen, but after about 10 seconds of cranking the coil wire will arc to the shock mount where I have it grounded. The car was running, but then it stalled (another problem to be fixed) and sice then it just won't start. Any ideas?

Hopefully, it's not the hard to find used, crank angle sensor, specific to 81 turbos only. If that
is the problem, I would upgrade to the 82/3 turbo distributor. e-mail me, or call for instructions.
