Started this here: http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?p=134302669#post134302669 New battery installed today. The old one (a Champion) tested as bad. I put an Optima Red Top in it. The starter spins the motor but she will not fire. This is an 85 QV. Dual ignition, distributors, etc etc. I am starting to worry about my alarm system. I know if I turn it on the starter will not engage. However, it may have a power cutoff line for the ignition. Any help on how to diagnose this? I never use the $#%#$% alarm, I probably need to remove it. I am now into an area I know little about, ignitions, coils etc. I know I have fuel. I do not have spark on either bank. Any clues? Synopsis of probolem: Car sat for 1.5 weeks - ran superb last time. Tried to start it and starter turns over motor but will not fire. Changed plugs to see if they were fouled. No luck. All old plugs looked great. Checked for spark - no spark. Cycled alarm on and off a few times. Still no luck. Tried to charge battery, would not charge, tested and found bad. Replaced with optima red top. Still will not start. Still no spark. Mechanic is out of town Right foot in withdrawel.
