Ok, it was converted to 12 volt negative ground. Everything I read shows I"m setup like it should be. Plus on the coil going to the dist and the negative going to the key switch. I've checked and the coil shows good. I ordered a distributor cap as of right now that looks like it's causing the problem. I tried the old rotor and the new rotor nothing changes from one to the other. I'll find out Monday afternoon. Looks like I'm good to the dist but not going to the plugs.

I'm sorry I didn't post a reply to your answer about how to hook up the coil. I changed the hook up of the coil and there wasn't any change. I had the + plus hooked up to the dist to begin with and hooked up the negative like you said to the dist like you said to do. Both ways got me no spark or at the best a very weak spark with a charged battery. Sorry if you took offense, I wasn't trying to offend you.

Ok, I got the tune up kit from the Ford dealer, changed everything except the points and I have spark at the plugs and everywhere else. I got zapped really good when I held the plug and wire against the block to check for spark. She started and after setting the carb to 1 turn out for the small side screw and 1 1/2 turns out for the big screw in the front I got her to idle. Idled for 10 plus minuets and tried to run it up but it choked and would die. I adjusted the small screw and it didn't make any differance. I turned it in till it bottomed out without any differance. I could adjust the big screw to get the idle up or down but she still chokes down when I give it the gas. Any ideas?
