alright, i know theres sorts of stuff in the archives bout this but im still confused. yesterday i welded half of the crack on the manifold (i know you guys told me to buy a new one, but what can i say...im cheap) and replaced points, condensor, plugs and plug wires. i went to drive it around today started and ran perfect but once it got warmed up and was going up a slight incline it would throw a fit and come close to dieing. im thinking its the coil cause i left the key on also yesterday and drained the battery and ive heard of people frying their coil when that happens. or i think it might not be getting enough fuel. i wasnt able to tinker with it cause i drained the motor and tranny oil. speaking of that...when i drained the oil in the tranny it was 2.5 gallons of milky colored oil (bad shifter boot) and the hydraulic oil was fine and there was no rear end oil. sorry for the long post. any help will go to a worthy cause. thanks

I'd look at points first. As Dell and the others said.. the roundcan coils are fairly reliable.

Now.. could be a fuel issue.. anything from a lean mainjet.. either from bad adjustment.. or a bit of junk from clogged filters.. Could even be a vacume leak on that welded up manifold causing a lean situation.

Check to see if choke helps it once you get it drivable again.

OK, just to make sure I'm gettin' it right...you're saying it starts and runs perfect and only spits & sputters when it starts going up an incline ? Does it go back to running fine when you're back on level ground ? If so, I'd be looking to clean the 3 fuel strainers, or clean out your glass sediment bowl under the fuel valve (got any water or dirt in there ?). How's the fuel flow to the carb ?

Let us know how you make out.

Well with key on you could have fryied the points, coil, or the condenser. As far as leaveing the gear boxs empty as long as you like it you want rouble with them. Once filled and run alittle it coats the parts with oil and they don't rust very fast that way

Matt..... ..the 6-volt roundcan NAA ignition coil is fairly bullettproof but the ignition points are NOT. The plastic rubbing block melts and your points won't open. Condenser is also bulletproof.

As long as you have your tranny, diffy, hydraulics plugged up, being empty of oil ain't gonna hurter. Tip: put one of those common white 5 gal bucketts over your tranny shifter knob until you gitta round to replace your tranny shifter rubber boot. ($5 cheap) Tip #2: boil (kinda) yer new tranny shifter rubber boot to make it soft enuff to stretch over all the stuff. Eazy, eh?..... ...Dell
