Now what?

Mike, start at the air gap, set this carefully, then the points, if you don't have good spark after that you are grounding out someplace, check the wire leading to the points closely right where the points cover goes over it. Are you checking the spark by holding the plug against the block or with a spack plug tester? Try different plugs! How's the clip inside the plug boot? One small thing can be the culprit, keep checking you'll find it!

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
