Points. Yuck. I'm so glad I went to electronic ignition on the rally car ('68
'B GT). Prior to that wonderful move,
(well wonderful except when I got hit by an ignition spark! wow!) I had a
strange thing going on that at first
I could not explain, then, like so many bizarre car situations, it seemed
totally logical when I found the progenitor
The car started to run poorly, symptoms of an ignition fault. It had fairly
new wires, plugs, cap, rotor, points, condenser...
I checked the points gap. Way too small. Adjusted it, drove car. Ran OK for
a while, then back to classic
ignition fault behaviour...
I could NOT keep my points adjusted. I'd set 'em, the car would run great
for a trip or two around the block, and then
start to stumble again....
I'm not going to tell you what I found right away, here's a chance for the
gurus to do some "bench wrenching".
