I've been working on a front distributor 8N for a week or so about two miles from my home. Wouldn't run. Replaced the coil and it would run but sputter etc. Removed the distributor and replaced the points and condenser. Chinese distributor plate and Chinese points and condenser. Hard to adjust the points as usual with this Chinese junk. Got them open to .010. Back together same. Pulled distributor and changed the condenser. Still sputtering. Took the carburetor off thinking it may be partially plugged up somewhhere. Cleaned everything. Had bad plastic venturi. Ordered new one and took the cleaned carbutetor back with bad venturi. Same thing. Had metal wire spark plug wires but real old and hard. Got new wires and installed them. Started up and ran good like it's supposed to. Bad wires I would not have really suspected being metal wire but they were clamped tightly together with wire ties and may have been swapping fire with adjoining wires.
