Default The problem with Prv's

Had to make another thread for this one as I'm ruining my original one with all the other vvos I pickup while building my 242 turbo.

Picked up this non running 1981 262c a few months back and started in on trying to resurrect it!

So far it's one step forward ten steps back !

I've replaced the main fuel pump, tank is clean, tank pump working, new fuel filter, fuel injectors are clean, fuel distribution unit seems to be working (depressing the air metering plate it springs back immediately,indicating the valve is moving freely).

Fresh plugs too!

She's running on starting fluid so I think the timing is ok.

Put some 108 octane into it last night with some premium and nowweve lost spark, think I've lost the ignition control unit now any pointers?
