Determining Model A Gas Mileage

I agree. Closing up the GAV some will yield better mileage than leaving it mostly open. It reduces carbon on the plugs as well.

Iím wondering if my coil is going bad

I greased the distributor cam again today, using Vaseline. I donít know if it that will wear any better or not.

Would a different type of grease be better? Maybe white lithium grease?

Iím wondering if my coil is going bad

These are not new points. They have been in the car for over a year and several thousand miles, which is why I was surprised at the gap ďmovementĒ over the last 300 miles or so.

Re: Iím wondering if my coil is going bad

Hmmm... it seems that folks either love or hate the Pertronix coils. I wonder why folks have such different experiences with them.

Re: Iím wondering if my coil is going bad
