I found a clean little "C" that has been sitting for 15yrs. Did all the right things to make it fire but nothing. Thought it was the coil but my buddy who was hanging on to it screamed and informed me that the coil was energized. Still nothing at the plugs though. Cleaned the points, cap and rotor are clean. I was told it drove itself into the garage 15yrs ago. I no nothing of condeners and I haven't set the timing but the points open and close correctly....I really don't wanna start throwing $$'s at it out of frustration!!... wires look older but not bad enough to have no spark at all, no shock (if holding in hand) at the tips of plugs.
