Just an update. Car turns out to be 6 volt negative ground. Finally got spark. Now starting motor has a broken spring. Great feeling to make progress.

Hi Guys

Which forum can I post jpg pictures on?

I have found 2 loose wires under the dash. One is black and it appears to be hooked to the ignition starter switch. It appears to also be one part of a set that holds a fuse?

The second wire comes from the engine bay into the driver area and has a metal clip on the end. A tightened screw would hold it in place. Same idea as the wires connected to the coil.

Both these wouldn't connect would they? Just a thought. Will post pictures when I know where I can post


Thanks

Brian

Hi

How did you determine the distributor was grounded?

Thanks

I am totally new at this. Do you mean a multimeter to check voltage? Can you give me the time to walk me through the process? Appreciate your taking the time. I will get this figured out with a lot of help and keep you in the loop

Hi Jim

I bought the car and from the get go there was no spark. So, I started with a tune up and started to replace what needed replacing. hope to get spark before I do any more replacing stuff but not sure. I am trying to figure out next steps
Cables appear right for car but have not been touched.

Could remove and clean as next step as well as doing everything suggested by everyone


Thanks for tips. Will let you know progress

Brian
