First of all...the problem cannot be the EZL unti since the ignition coil is grounded to protect the EZL unit from any overload from the coil. It would be stupid if Mercedes would not protect a $3,000 part by leaving it open to overload. Second, I don't think moving the distributor would cause me to not be able to reset at TDC and get the car started again. I need help not criticism or random out of left field thoughts. Anyways, the W126 manual CD states that the ignition coil can be tested while still connected which is esentially what happened by cranking the engine with the coil disconnected at the distributor housing. So....what happened?
1990 560 SEL- "Goldielocks"
1984 300SD TurboDiesel- "Ole' Blue"
