If the engine is turning over slow, that may be the real clue to the failure to start, and the modest spark. The battery cables are likely to be made for a 12v car. They must be at least 2 gauge, or better 0gauge cables. Slow cranking indicates low voltage to the coil. Pretty easy to check the cables for size. At least pencil sized copper or first grade size if you want the best.
A way to test the voltage thing is to use a different battery to make it start, while using the normal battery to power the ignition. TO do this disconnect the big and small wire from the starter switch and bolt them together separately wit tape over them to prevent grounding. Then use a 12v battery to jump directly to the starter stud (with the nut put back on it) and to ground.
Polarity does not matter, the starter will turn well, and in the correct direction. With the jumper battery hooked up just turn on the ignition and activate the starter switch. This setup does not compromise the regulator, or lights, or generator because the 12volts is only spinning the starter, and is not affecting the 6volt normal setup. Jim

I understand..... I will isolate the starter and use a 12 volt battery to spin it. I won't need the ballast resister.... and, if it works, it will confirm that the ignition will work with 6 volts.

THANKS for the great suggestion. I'll post the results tomorrow.

Incidentally.... I think the cables are 0. They are about a half inch thick. I also tested for resistance and there is none, at least my meter is showing 0 ohms end to end.
