Spent 3-4 hours taking out the motor, replacing the coil and replacing motor. Started immediately.
At some point I'd taken off the hood, and put it back on, while running, and it would stop running as I attempted to tighten the left rear hood knob. I lifted it up and it would keep running...Now won't start. No spark.
Sounds to me like the voltage regulator posts stick up too high and touch the hood and shorted it all out.
@#$%^&^%$# Thanks AC designer, for that...$33 and a full afternoon wasted.
