Re: Engine won't fire
If you have spark at the plugs there should be ignition in the cylinders. Do recheck point gap and condition of the points. It's possible that they pitted out real bad and you have a week spark. Which then may be your coil being the issue. For grins and giggles, pull a plug and see if it is wet and smells of fresh gas after trying to start it. If you've got spark at the plug and it's wet with no combustion occurring at all, then it's a timing issue for sure. Whether it's the timing being off, the points being pitted too badly or a weak coil putting out too little spark. One other thing. .You didn't mention whether when it turned over if it tried to run and died or not. If that's the case, then look at the resistor on the firewall and make sure that its still good. You may be getting spark while cranking, but that would only be because the resistor is bypassed at cranking.
