Re: No spark

Cas3 before I ran the Emery cloth through points I changed out the coil with a coil that I had on the Shelf with no effect. I also changed out the condenser with one that I had on the Shelf too

Re: Dawsonville Moonshine Festival

Gets smaller and smaller every year. Still fun but not like it used to be when all the 40's parked around the city square. I did pick up some Merc parts at the swap meet today though

Re: Small head temp gage.

I just removed mine to add dual mechanical gauges under the dash. Sad to remove that moon eyes gauge. Nice to see the temp under the hood
