Points to electronic ignition????
I have a 67' fairlane 500 convertable that im trying to get started..... Now bare with me, as i am a honda guy, and do most of my car stuff swapping honda engines......., But i want to get my fairlane started again, at least to be mobile until i can really start restoring the car....
Now to the problem.... The car wont start..... I think its the poitns again. Ive had trouble with them a few years back, but the car has sat since them. They would continuously need adjusting, or just burn out i guess.
So, after trying to some good old started fluid down the carb, and she didnt even gurgle, im assuming im not getting spark, correct? (i mean, if i had spark the motor woul have kicked with that starter fluid right?? that stuff is potent.)
Now, if its the points, im very intrested in just switching to an electronic system, cause im really tired of playing with them...... i think the coil is ok ...with the car in the "on" position, im getting a positive voltage at the two small post, and the main lead that does to the middle of the dizzy dap.
So, maybe you guys can evaluate what is going on....
But let me ask, how hard is it to switch to an electric dizzy??? Alot of wiring or anything??? Could i still use my stock coil with it, or do i have to spend even more money on a control unit or something???
Thanks in advance, and nice site!!!
