I appreciate it! We are working on getting the wiring cleaned up. The guy I bought the car from had an absolute rats nest of wires. Does anyone have a manual for the fj1200 that they could send me for future issues?

Setup and Handling / Re: Lead weight placement

You will need to scale the car with driver to see where lead placement is needed.
Pay attention to your left and right side weight, cross weight and rear weight percentages.
Read the current rulebook, page 75, Rule 73.

Check to make sure you have a good ground is always a good starting point.
The troubleshooting guide in the repair manual suggests checking the following:
a) Loose electrical connections.
b) Dirty electrical connections.
c) Loose or broken ignition coil ground wire.
d) Broken or shorted high tension lead to the spark plug(s).
e) Ignition unit malfunction.
f) Weak ignition coil(s).
g) Ignition or stop switch malfunction.

Hope that helps.

Engine Care & Tuning / 1200 not getting spark

I recently bought a used Legends car. I'm having troubles getting it running. It's getting fuel and the compression is good. When I crank it it will only fire once. I changed the ignition box and the timing plate but neither fixed the problem. What else could be the issue?

This also reminds me. I bought out the Nevada Legends dealer years ago and in that inventory was a full length muffler system to meet their local track noise ordinance. Let me see if I can find those parts. It was full length and used a supertrapp muffler.

It seems like there were 5-6 complete systems.

It will be a week or two before I can get to my other shop to search.

Bliss Racing had a suitcase muffler that mounted under the left running board.
