ABITS Training & Diagnostics Hardcopy Document - Published online

All,
I have taken several days & hours culling down the pertinent information that was listed in the YouTube video titled: LT1 Optispark (ABITS) Distributor Operation and Diagnostics.

The final product came to be a 28 page double sided document with close up detail shots, and detailed text on testing each sensor, and it appropriate reading.

It is available for ALL to have as it is on a public site callled 'Dropbox'

The site URL is: Dropbox

The Logon and password are as follows:

Logon: [email protected]
PW: dropboxshare

The Word document & 158Mb MP4 original file are located in the \ImpalaSSforum\ directory.

I thought it would be great to have a hard copy in a 3-ring binder in the trunk of the Impala/Caprice, just in case she does break down while away from the house. A DVOM, spark tester, and test light are all helpful tools as well.

Let me know what you think, and we can vote to have this sticked if deemed necessary.
================================================== ======================

(I PM'd BK for him to move it to the Engine Problem & Maintenance section, and also STICKY it)

Plus we ALL can use the Dropbox site for sharing files as well!

REVISION C PUBLISHED TODAY, 4/30/2011

1. The last image on Sheet 4 showing an E4 External Torx Socket is required to remove the distributor cap, and the tool and 1 screw shown for reference.

2. The last image on Sheet 5 showing the rotor and noting that it is held down by (2) (T9) screws and Loc-Tite should be applied upon reinstallation.

3. Top of page 7/32 I added the text stating that the Optical sensor is held down by (2) E6 External Torx screws.
==========================
I also did the following to the Dropbox site:
1. Changed DIR structure a little and removed the *.DOC master copy that I will keep myself for editing. If anyone has a problem with the .PDF format, contact me privately and we can make arrangements for a format that suits you best.
2. Updated the document slightly to show what Torx tools are required. The details are as follows, for the REV-C Document:2.

noice !

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
