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 ?

YES 6v open, lost when it close

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]
