I decided to try and fix the problem (code 4) with one of the old sensors.
Opened up the distributor and replaced just the CKP sensor using solder and shrink wrap.
But Now i am getting a code 9.
(which is weird because i wasn't when i first swapped the internal distributor Harness)
I then proceeded to check resistance and continuity at the distributor plug and ecu.
Everything checked out good
350-700ohm. - i was reading 370-380ohm at each sensor wire(at dist. plug) and at each pin at the ecu with no continuity.
Made sure each sensor magnetic was as close as possible to the inside shaft. (Idk the clearance, maybe someone knows?)
-Of course ignition timing is correct using via paperclip service conector.
-Reset the ecu when needed each time.
-Checked distributor/ecu plugs for looseness. Made sure its getting contact.
-Used a known working ecu from a running car and still got the code 9.
Car runs great (what i can tell) for 210,xxx miles no bogging, no stuttering, and no misfires.
My next steps
1st - to check mechanical timing
2nd - try to bolt of my civic distributor and see what happens.
3rd - take apart distributor and replace the CYP sensor
This code 9 has been bugging me for awhile so i am open to all ideas!!
