I am having some major fits with my dual coil system. I was on the way home from work the other night and my repu just died. After having it towed home I decided to work on it for a bit and swapped the coil wires and it fired right up. I decided to replace the leading coil thinking that was the problem but it still wpnt fire. All my connections seem to be in order or at least I didn't touch them but still no fire. I checked the resister going to the leading but the coil spring had no breaks. I keep fouling points and have no clue where to go from here. There is no one that I have found in the Lexington area that will touch it. Man is it running rough. Anybody have any suggestions?

I am just viewing this now and just yesterday had a problem with a missing and stalling condition and the tach was jumping and sitting on zero. Turns out it was only the yellow wire terminal at the points that was loose. The terminal snapped on then became loose, the fix was a careful crimp for the terminal fit. A simple fix sure brought back the grin.
