I assume you have converted to 12 volt. Did you, by chance, install a resistor before a 12 volt coil? That would weaken the spark I think.

Yes, I converted to a 12v alt kit and system. I did put in a resistor the wiring diagram in the kit showed it. But what your saying is the kit is assuming I still have a 6v coil, points and condesor? Should I take it out and tie the two wires together? Thanks.

Danny........gitta REAL 12V coil, NAPA IC-14. ($15, cheap) Never uses a resistor. Plus it makes hotter sparkies too. Condensers are known to be BAD right outta the box. And yes, the boys are right, yer points gitt INVISIBLE corrosion on them. Me? I clamp a clean $1-bill between the points (0.025") and pull. Iff'n yer really cheap, tear a strip from HEAVY brown paper grocery sack and use that. ........Dell, yer self-appointed sparkie-meister

Before you remove the resistor, check the coil to make sure it has ~3.2 ohms resistance. Many so called 12v coils are 1.6 ohm coils that need a resistor on a 12 V system.
