Hi Kevin,
Thank you for your reply. Sure glad you got it going !
I have been thinking about your no spark through the plug when in the engine. I believe it takes more voltage to generate a spark as the pressure increases. If the system is marginal from anything that cuts the current flow down like bad points etc, the voltage generated could be great enough to generate a spark with no pressure like when you shorted the plug not screwed in but may not have enough voltage to generate a spark when screwed into the engine because of the pressure difference .
Thank you so much for the reply.
Best Wishes.

Hey thanks for asking... Well dealing with that no spark through the plug while in the head was very frustrating but I think I got it beat. Replaced the condensor, plugs and wires and it was running good. Then all of a suddden one day the same thing happend, so I had a new set of points on hand so I quickly changed them as well as cleaned up the dist under the dust cover real well and have had no trouble since. The old points did have a small "nipple" on them where they make contact so hopefully that was it. I thanks you all for your ideas.

Today's Featured Article - Welding Basics - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the most useful skills that an owner of older equipment can have is the knowledge and ability to weld. It seems like the older equipment can do a job, albeit slowly compared to newer stuff, but it tends to break more often. Many of the breakdowns are related to the implements that are being used: the disc, wagon or bushog are among them. Knowing how to fix stress cracks, reinforce weak joints by welding on steel support plates, or cutting and shaping parts and adapters out of raw stee ... [Read Article]
