PLEASE HELP!!!! No Spark

Posted by David Cotton on July 26, 2016 at 9:00pm 6 Comments

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…

Ignition key location

Posted by Tony and Ginny 429 on July 26, 2016 at 10:17am 0 Comments

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?

COIL QUESTION

Posted by David Cotton on July 22, 2016 at 9:28pm 2 Comments

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?

Any info would be Greatly Appreciated.

Thanks
