Re: Spark Question

I didn't know/realize it was a wireless plate. As said they are known to be problematic. I was thinking there was a grounding issue, with that plate there may well be an open issue. I don't have a...

Re: Spark Question

#17 states you had voltage to the open point arm. Now you don't. Sounds like one of the connectors is now grounding. Look and move the one giving the trouble. Or the wire may be bad/worn and...

Re: Spark Question

OK. Take the coil secondary high tension lead out of the cap and place it 1/4" from a good ground. Remove distributor cap so you have access to points. Have points closed and put a piece of paper...

1. Remove all sparklers

Re: Spark Question

There should be battery voltage at terminal box connections, primary coil connections.

1.5 ohms across coil primaries.

The primary lead could be bad or screwed into the distributor too far...

1. Set points to .022"
2. Set timing [ use pin]
3. Check for 6v at open point arm
4. 0v at closed point arm
5. Place secondary coil wire near 1/4" from good ground
6. Open/close repeatedly point...
