Anyone have any ideas on how to test the little Ignition control module? How to test the pick up coil? Anyone have a service manual that could take some pictures of these areas? Van has spark for the 1st couple cranks and then nothing.

It's what you learn after you know it all, that counts...

If not start/no spark key on run, Ignition Resistor? Ballast Resistor?

Circa 1978,79, The Tile contractor I drove truck for had a fleet of late model D 318 pickups. I had a box of ignition resistors with me, and spent many a fine day on long drives out to rescue stranded crews. Turn a few screws, Vroom. Every time. Lunch. Drive home. Good Wrenching!

Van On!

I figured it out, I bought a 1984 service manual. The Ignition control module was bad, The engine fired right up after replacing that. I also had to replace the coil and ballast resistor.
