Recommended Posts

Got all kinds of spark, but all it wants to do is pop, cleaned points,got good fuel, new plug. Could it be the points? or timing? Should I do away with the points? Could use all the adivce I can get . Thanks for the help on the spark problem. SCOOP from TR MI.

Scoop I am an auto mechanic and as you can understand it's been a while since I messed with points but if the dwell angle was off enough that is all you will get so check your point gap that could be the problem. A lean situation could also cause backfires verify whether popping through carb or exhaust
