I totally agree with you about replacing any wires that are compromised.
So, I went back and examined the wires that looked burnt in the pictures. On inspection, they seemed to be dirty and perhaps had some glue from…"
I think Tony may be on the right track. Some parts stores carry the Standard brand of ignition points with a separate condenser. This was one of the old brands that mechanics relied on for tune ups back in the day.
"A complete tune up should include ignition wires ,at intervals
The covering looses its protective quality and the wires arch to metal ,that you can see in the dark
Not good for spark delivery to the plugs at all"
"My best guess is that you points were not screwed down tight and the adjustment moved on you
The points SB open when the dist cam is on its high point
Plug the coil wire out ,click the starter until the dist cam is on the high pont of the cam and…"
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. I changed the coil three times and just bought a Fourth- still NO SPARK- even with 12 Volts going to it. I am lost here. The only thing i did not change is that small condenser or resister on the coil. What does that do?? Could it be causing…See More

"The original ball was machined on the yoke which made it a non replaceable part. In those days you could buy a new drive shaft so it was not a problem. That's not true today. Today the only way to replace the ball is to put the shaft in a lath…"
"Not if my lawyer has anything to do with it. I actually had the car brought to the original rebuilder and wanted to give him a chance to correct the problems. But he became a real jerk about it, would not stand by his work. So now it gets legal and…"

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?
