Re: Still no spark

well in retrospect, i wonder if the grounding at the distributer was the issue all along. Or at least a ground issue of some kind

Re: Still no spark

Success!

I backed the cable out from the lower distributor as Bill Williamson suggested.

I guess it was grounding out there.

Go figure.

Re: starter/Bendix/Flywheel?

I will try that.

I did use the hand crank thinking that would move the ring gear relative to the Bendix pinion gear. I guess my thinking is wrong??

starter/Bendix/Flywheel?

1930 Tudor

Thought Bendix was bad so replaced.

Same issue.
