Default Re: Spark Question

OK. Tell us what you have. Where does the voltage stop ? Are you getting 6v at the point arm when open ? Do you lose that voltage when the point arm closes ?

If that doesn't happen then the problem is from the supply voltage to the terminal box, to the coil, to the switch, to the distributor.

Have you checked the condenser ? have you tried another condenser ? Condensers today are mostly junk [ as I mentioned I just went thru 5 new 'short-proof' ones before I got a good one]

Have the sparklers gotten wet ? [ fuel fouled]
