went to start my oliver 77 for the first time in a couple months and it wouldnt start. it is converted to twelve volt. brought the test light out and came to the conclusion that it is not getting spark. it has power all the way to the distributor so i changed the points condensor cap and wires and end up with the same result.. no spark. with distributor cap off the rotor moves when engine is cranked over. could i have a bad distributor? and is there a way to test the distributor to see if it is faulty?? any help is appreciated thanks.

With the cap rotor and dust cover off turn the ignition on and by hand carefully open and close the points by hand. You should both see and hear a spark at the points. If you do not then you need to clean the points. Now days they put a protective coating on some brands of points and that will stop them from working. Now as for doing the parts before finding the problem I would never do that. My Oliver 77 has the same points in it as it did when I got it 10 plus years ago and it still runs just fine or did the last time I started it
