coil problems?

I was swapping drive belts today and on one of the last test runs I forgot to bolt the coil to the frame, it shorted to the frame and blew the ignition fuse. I replaced the fuse and now the machine will only do 30-35 mph....Is it possible to damage the coil in a way that it will work under a small load but can't handle a heavy load? It acts like it is hitting the rev limiter...Thanks in advance for any helpful hints or ideas.

Not likely. The ECU can handle shorts, there is even a fault code in the diagnostics for it. The coil is nothing magical, and shouldn't be harmed by shorting it.

I have a feeling its something to do with the belt, and you are actually on the engine rev-limiter.

I put on a belt from EPI and was not happy with the results.. the first trip out I had no bottom end,took everything back apart and reinstalled the EPI belt....this time I could only hit 30-35, Removed the EPI belt and put the stock one back on with the same results................I blew the ignition fuse on the last trip because the coil shorted to the frame.

I agree! Check the rollers. I had the same problem when I installed my sheave.

Steve,

in fact yes the coil does play a pretty big role in the performance of the vehicle. But usually if the coil is shorted out it wont even start. I had 2 bad dynateks. 1 wouldnt even start and 1 would start but wouldnt run very well. Do you have an msd or dynatek ignition? If so you might want to remove that cause electronics get tricky and a small problem turns into a huge one.

Pull your sheave off and check your rollers, sounds like you have 4 bad rollers and a worn out slider..
