Hi Guys,
With my 60 still not running since about 3 months ago when it DID run strong, I've started out my process of elimination by removing all the old gas & putting in new with stabilizer....still won't fire up. I've put new plugs in too. Once I saw the gas filling the bowl as I was cranking I figured it would fire soon....but no go...not even an inkling.
I've got some things I purchased that I never got a chance to put in but now will start doing so. I removed the distributor cap & was expecting to be looking straight at the points & condenser. Instead I was looking at a plate as shown in picture. I'm not familiar with this. I've replaced points on cars many times in the past when I was younger & we could actually do some of our own backyard mechanical stuff. Are the points directly behind that plate? I've got new points & condenser to put in but am curious what that plate is all about.
Thanks for any help. I'll try to keep posting with my progress as I eliminate possibilities. I guess my next step after either checking the points or replacing them & the condenser would be to put the new distributor cap, rotor on. Am I supposed to put the special electrical grease on the rotor end for better contact?
