"Chris, put the old regulator back on, and have the alternator tested at a parts store.
Sounds like the fuel pump is bad. There was a bad batch of pumps a few years ago. Take the pump apart and check to see if the check valves popped out.
Hey guys well I decided to replace the voltage regulator on my 64, because when there's a load on the battery, I notice the voltage drops a lot. I figured I replace the VR which would help as the the…Continue

I am having a terrible time with my 64 SDV- She quit on me at a Red Light. All the ignition parts are new and the points are properly adjusted. I have 12 Volts going to the coil and power to the distributor- but NO SPARK. So I thought -must be a bad coil.

The only thing i did not change is that small condenser or resister on the coil. What does that do?? Could it be…
The ignition key on our cars SB in the north - south position when the car is off ,unlike the cars we are driving today
The key in the far left position is in the accessory location ,and could cause the battery to run down at times
When looking at pictures of a cars interior ,the key is often left in the assessory - in error
You can remove the key from the ignition at any time ,with the car running or not ,that is a bit unique
Do not lock your keys in the trunk… Continue
So i switched the harmonic balancer out and replaced some of the emissions hoses that were going back into the carb with filters.The car only runs at half when im at idle but begins to bog down and want to die when it does. Ive replaced the thermostat with a 180,thats what was in there prior,flushed the radiator,and still the same results,should i get an oil cooler second fan for radiator ,what can i do to make her run at 180 at all times?
My 64 SDV has no power going to Coil. I have a good battery that is fully charged and everything looks to be hooked up correctly. Is there a fuse that may have blown that provides power to the coil? Has anyone else had this problem?
