1954 600 ran fine. Accedentally left key on and now nothing. I know the points & cond are touchy, so I changed everthing, pts, cond, rotor, cap & coil. Am getting 6v to coil all the way to the pts when open. Also, getting spark at pts when shorted with screw driver. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

First off what do you have?? No such thing as a 1954 600 they came out in 1955 the first year. That said you have spark at the points but do you have the points set correctly at 0.025 and did you set that on the top of the lobe?? Since you say 6 volts at the coil I am guessing it is still a 6 volt system. You also said you got new parts. You may have your self a bad new condenser which is common now days. Pull the center wire out of the cap and hold it about a 1/4 inch from the block and spin it over wit the ignition on. You should see a blue/white spark that jumps a 1/4 inch or more. No or weak spark go back and check your points and make sure there is not short etc in that area

First make sure you have spark at the plugs. Pull a plug wire and ground it to the engine block somewhere.
You should have bright bluish white spark that will jump a good 5/16"
If you have good spark and if you have been turning it over a lot you may have your engine flooded.
Take the plugs out and let the cylinders air out a bit. Bring the plugs in and cook them off over the stove or use a propane torch. Then reinstall them and try it again.
Post back with your results.
