Re: loss of power 115 C

okay back to base on a fuel issue and not electrical
son was over and i suggested that we disconnet fuel line and crank over..oh oh no fuel to carb..then we disconnect the inlet side of fuel pump oh oh dry no residual fuel on he floor...he blew into the gas line goiing to tank and we reconnected all the lines he primed the carb a little and the old girl fired right up I now think the problem is Isolated obstruction in line, debris in gas tank or pickup tube he is coming over mid week and we are dropping the tank checking tthe gas line and the pickup tube and possible debri in tank

loss of power 115 C

well here we go again..two weeks ago my sons and I checked the fuel system, fuel pump and carb no problem there plus fresh gas in fuel tank. well we got it running after two years being idle..all seemed well as i took it for a spin ( 4 miles)...35 miles an hour in the country. HOWEVER..Last night took it down to O Reilys( 5 miles) to get some cleaning supplies for the old girl.. all of a suden she started back firing and loss of power !!! uggh Some young guys helped me push it into O Rielys lot..tried again to start nothing. (i could smell the gas as i pushed the peddle to start ( so nothing there). My suspicions now led me to an electrical issue distributor or COIL. A young Jeep entusiast pulled into the lot. he said beautiful car man !! Wait i have a plug tester in my car..now crank it over. Nice blue spark on the tester.( so i have eliminated) a possible distributor issue ( for the time being) I now think it is a coil issue. I have had my Love for 25 years haha just a nice driver. and it has had the same coil since I bought the car 25 years ago.( the original Autolite type.) and god knows how long he prior owner had it . A check on the internet indicates that backfiring, loss of power and poor idle is an indicaion of coil failure. or the begging of coil failure.. I have ordered a new original AutoLite coil ( I like orginallity) your thoughts of these issues thank to all for your past input on other issues
