No Spark, help get me get it running.
Okay, I am new to the BMW world and new to the forums.
One of my friends have a 1986 BMW 325 and I took it out for a ride and it was love and first drive. After a few months of looking I found one that had been parked for 5-6 years. The timing belt broke and bent two valves. It was a steal since I got it for free just had to fix the guys truck's wiring issues.
Well, on to the issue. I have torn it down and rebuilt it from the block out/up.
After getting the engine back together I sat down prayed and turned the key. It just turned over with out cranking. A few not so nice words later, I started checking to see if I had fuel to the injectors, Yeah. Checked to see if I had spark, nope. I replaced the wires, still nothing. I replaced the Ignition Coil, got some spark, but it is not steady and now I am getting nothing again. I had already checked the relays. I am getting 12v to the coil.
I got it to run once, but I do not have the radiator in for a little more room. So I turned it off. It ran for a good 3-4 min, bother-in-law came over and said hey crank it up I want to hear her. Nothing just the same old turning over.
I am getting spark every now and then. I went to the local junk yard and got a used Electronic Control Unit. I was taking it out and found out that someone had messed with the wiring. I know it goes to the coil, I have traced it back but the bigger Green wire has a inner and an outer wire. not sure how to hook this back up.
Any help will greatly come in handy. I have checked on other forums and they have all failed me.
