Still the same magnetic sensor?? Do you have another new one? I would start there as this is all that has not yet being changed.

I have been and kept saying that right from the start. No good stable rpm reading and you will not start that car.
What is the cause of these behaviour
And how can i neutralise it.

Panic commented on an earlier post that you need an isciloscope or a new sensor to trouble shoot and confirm current sensor is deffective.

I have also asked if you have a spare new sensor to use and has asked a few pages back that you check the airgap between sensor tip and trigger teeth. Asked you to measure from the block to the trigger teeth and also sensor from tip to the mounting face to determine the airgap between sensor tip and trigger teeth. While you measure from the block to the trigger teeth on the trigger wheel, check that the trigger wheel is not wobbling or loose on the crank.

If you don’t do this, you will never get this car started.

I think i've tried all i can and i sdint win on these one
So its time i visit those with betrer tools than me.

I have measured the distance on the sensor, and removed the o-ring on the sensor so that it may bevfoward by a centimetre but it ddnt help. It js promises bt doesnt wanna catch.
So i think i must js take it to someone.

Thank you for all your efford in trying to help me with all the knowledge u have but will continuecto update you with all developments that i have.

sadly this is one of those where at this point you need help form somebody that has experience of the system and or can do diagnostics with a scope. So you need to know if the trigger is sending a clean signal and if the management box is seeing it right.

Sounds that you are giving up on this now. Don’t give up.

Only way now is to get it to someone who can assist with the correct testing equipment. Will cost you a few bucks though.

Just some more questions to add to above:

Where is the rotor arm in relation to no:1 cylinder on TDC? Have you tried moving the distributor either advance or retard for atleast 30 degrees from the centre of the rotor tip? Your rotor phasing might be off

As you have spark, do you have a timing light? If you do have a timing light, connect it to no:1 plug wire and swing motor and shoot light at the front pulley timing mark to see if you are anywhere close to TDC when sparkplug is firing. That way you can get an indication of how close or far off is your timing trigger point. Make sure your TDC mark is properly marked.

One thing you can also try is to reset ecu map to default map on the "File Options" page to reset map on ecu to the Dicktator default map. This will reset trigger settings on "Sensor Setup" page and default timing and fuel values with 4 cylinder and ignition divide 2 and trigger angle 57 with single coil on map selection.

After this and still no start, I am out of any further ideas.

This is recommended if and when you have steady RPM signal on the ecu or else no luck to get motor started.

Cool, getting feedback helps us all at the end to know what was the cause.
