Re: 1960 Starliner

If battery condition low or a "lazy " starter dragging it down , it could be pulling the spark at plugs .Tried a jumper battery to give it a boost ? Don't suppose checking fuses would help ?

Battery Voltage and State of Charge:

12.66v . . . . . . . . . . 100%
12.45v . . . . . . . . . . 75%
12.24v . . . . . . . . . . 50%
12.06v . . . . . . . . . . 25%
11.89v . . . . . . . . . . 0%

I'm off forum now till tomorrow .

Never, never, never give up.

Re: 1960 Starliner

Does the battery / ignition / alternator warning light come on with all other dash lights prior to cranking ?

Re: 1960 Starliner

If you jumped a hot wire from the battery straight to the 12V input side of the coil, and it did not start, you've narrowed it down. Distributor, coil, cap, rotor, connections, pick-up coil. Somewhere right there. You can verify it by seeing if you have spark at a plug when cranking.

You've bypassed everything else by jumping straight to the coil.

I see that now RS.

And this
Quote:
Jwko and Mr Logan, tried the hot wire and still no joy. Everything electric works when key is trurned to run, when turned to start position things stop working and engine turns over very nicely, but won't start.
Primary iginition circuit resistance test show 9-10volts when cranking and 12 volts when in run position. Primary iginition voltage when in run is 12v. Tested pink resistance wire for ohm's and got same as new wire.
Everything seems fine up to the coil. The coil, distributor, wires and plugs , we don't know this yet. I see where he has pertronix. Its been a long time,,, but I have messed with that setup, once. Should be a red wire coming from the pick-up coil to the + side of the coil. Black wire from the same going to the - side of the coil. Check those connections, that is if there is no fire.

Do we have fuel at the carb?

Re: 1960 Starliner

Want to thank all who have given me advice. Based on having no spark, decided to replace the new pertronix inginator with a nanother new one and car started right up. Tried testing the removed system by again using an ohm meter , connnecting the two leads and then rotating the round spark sensor near the module and got no indication of it working. Cleaned up the car and had it on the road in about two hours, car ran fine, no problems.
Again Thanks too all who helped.
