    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can help me. I have a 88 EF Civic with a ZC DOHC in it, the problem that i have is that i'm continually having to replace the dizzy because the 2 pick up coils inside it keep over heating and delaminating then the copper windings fall to bits, I have put 2 replacement dizzys in and still have a problem somewhere causing this to happen. Any help on why this is happening or what tests that i should do to find out what could cause this to happen would be much appricated. Thanks Bulla

    Have you replaced the core? a bad core can cause the distubuter to spin out of balance or at the wrong rpm, causeing it to overheat or break apart.
