Hank.......there are 4-common runtime issues with the 4-nipple frontmount dizzy. 1) runs fer about 1-min and quits; restarts innna 'bout 5-mins; BAD condenser
2) runs fer about 5-mins and quits; restarts innna 'bout 5-mins; clogged in the tank filter
3) runs fer about 15-mins and quits; restarts innna 'bout 30-mins; BAD weaksister ignition switch $10, cheap)
4) runs fer about 1-hr and quits; restarts innna 'bout 4-hrs or overnite cooldown; BAD squarecan ignition coil
Don't fergitt the dome tank vent under the hood gitts clogged up by mud-dobbers and VACUUM will stop yer gravity fed fuel system. Just un-snapple yer gas capple. Simple, eh?
You do know ittza 2-bolt, 15-min job to remove yer frontmount dizzy and change the points (0.015") on the kitchen table, don't you? You can NOT re-install outta time 'cuz of the "off-set" drive scheme. Just un-snapple yer capple and letter dangle, simple eh?
Ennytime you have "starting issues", change yer sparkies. NO ARGUE!!!
Recommend AutoLite 437's gapped 0.025". Don't throw yer FLOODED sparkies away, just clean'n'dry them one-atta-time in HOT running engine and save'um fer the next time. (and there will be a NEXT time)
Recommend you squander $25 (cheap) for the I&T FO-4 manual. It even has pictures fer the reading challenged. .......Dell, yer self-appointed sparkie-meister
