Hi,
I was going to winterize my 1980 stars and stripes at the weekend but it wouldn't fire up. I am getting 12v at coil but only a spark at one point? I havent checked a spark plug as i assumed if there is no spark at distributer no spark at plug? Is this a condenser problem? Should I replace points and condenser?
Also since I can't start the engine I can't flush antifreeze through it. I have taken the plugs out the manifold and plan to use a ceramic heater in the engine compartment to try to stop any freezing. Any other tips would be appreciated?

Thanks

if there is power at the coil it sounds like a disributor issue, points may need to be adjusted/replaced. may just be some condensation in there messing with things also...
