Thanks for the ideas guys but if you look at the thread I linked to you will see I tired almost everything you've listed.

Now the coil on the mag, might be the case, still probably easiest to test by just swapping the distributor over.

I've tried 3 carbs, 2 of which were rebuilt, one professionally.

I've tried different wires and different plugs.

Gene, do you mean off a tooth in the mag or the engine's timing is off? I do get good blue spark. This thing used to start pretty easily hand cranking, now it's nearly impossible.

I've run it with out air cleaner, propane checked the manifold. I'm thinking it's either ignition or some sort of internal manifold issue.

There are gears that turn the rotor and sometimes when points are changed the cover is removed and in the process putting it back the timing of the gears turning the rotor get the rotor off some thats why you remove the cap and check where the rotor is when it fires so with the mark on the body where the wires go you can then see with the cap off if the rotor is times. Using the crank lets you see the rotor stop befor the mag trips. Being off just one tooth makes a huge difference in starting.
