Electrical problems?

Nope. The spark conponents on a solidstate system are are the points and condenser, and solid state(coil)

Check also that the ignition switch isn't grounding it out.

That's what I thought. This is the 3-legged armature. Replaced armature due to a wire coming off. Worked great, then started having intermittent cutting out. Changed points and condenser, thought that solved it. Only to have intermittent cutting out again. Tried a different condenser, pulling ground out to condenser, etc. Still not getting great spark. Pulled the engine, armature is still intact, flywheel sheer key doesn't appear to be out of whack. I'm about ready to blow this thing up!

      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!😁
