Gave the old bird a tune-up over the last couple of days. Replaced what is probably the original coil along with the distributor cap, points, condensor, rotor, and plugs. The alternator also made funny noises like the bearings were on their way south, so it got replaced with a 60amp model. I think that the one on it was probably like 30amp, which wil help power the A/C when I get it this summer. If anyone is wondering, the correct point gap for this engine is .025 and the dwell is 37-42. I dont have a dwell meter, so mine is off by a hair, which makes the timing a hair off also. I am planning to replace this with a Pertronix Ignitor which oughta help fix this problem.
