Re: ignition

Not guilty Stan, apparently the coil , which I doubt was original was dated, after installing new coil spark was sharp and blue, just had to reset the points and clean! Thank GOD for no electronic ignition, It could only get better if it was magneto :D She 's running top shelf just in time to unload...
