Thanks for the input everyone.

I was really curious about the carbon/copper wire thing, as theoretically, I could see issues, but had no experience to back it up to justify the cost of replacing already new plug wires.

Ill get that going and see where it leads - in the mean time, will check compression. Its always been a decent starter, and ran well... just something happened between the last, and second to last time Dad ran it.

Dell:

Yeah, I know its a 15 minute job, as I just did it yesterday before I started inspecting the wires. The ones that were in there, supposedly only had 10 hours on them, but had obviously welded together or something cause there was a huge divot out of the stationary point face and a sharp build up on the moving point face. So I replaced them, thinking I had the fix... But no such luck. But didnt clean the "invisible corrosion" you mentioned... had never heard of that, so will do that as well just to eliminate possibilities. Guessing its a light oil coating or something that causes a bit of oxidization?

But the copper wire vs Carbon appears to be a big thing...which I wondered if it might be - so will get on that first, and then see where I end up.

Thanks a bunch, and any other input, ideas, or suggestions are welcome.

Thanks

Wade

You can buy everything you need at Napa to make your own plug wires. You can buy plug wire by the foot. It's not copper core but it is stranded wire core. You can make each plug wire the exact length you need.

You can also buy the following.

90 degree metal clip ends for the plugs

90 degree rubber elbows

metal clip ends for the distributor

straight rubber caps for the distributer

I keep five or six feet of wire and a few sets of clips and rubber boots on hand so I can easily replace any wire if I have to.
I can post pictures of how to make up the wires if you need them.

Wade........you write......."The ones that were in there, supposedly only had 10 hours on them, but had obviously welded together or something cause there was a huge divot out of the stationary point face and a sharp build up on the moving point face"........the "divot and build-up" are the result of BAD condenser. That is what yer condenser is supposed to do, PREVENT burned points. Condensers are known to be BAD right outta the box. Dig yer OLD condenser outta the trash and re-use it.

Condensers don't wear out, but most shadetree mechanics have NO WAY to test condensers so its automatically included in all points sets.

No telling where or why yer points (0.015") gitt INVISIBLE corrosion, just you gotta clean'em just as I recommend after installation. ($1-bill) Many feeler gauges (0.015") are oily to prevent rust. ........Dell, sparkie-meister
