Re: Help Me -before I go mad

Sounds like might be the rotor....old originals do go bad, new repros are suspect. 4.3 at the coil is low enough, what is the generator charging? I don't know, but are Skips coils built to be 4.3...

Re: 34 ignition lock

Usually the door lock and the ignition lock share the same key. Take the door lock out and get a key to fit that....the code is stamped into the side of the barrel. Might be lucky.

And if you aren't using a NEW axle, make sure the axle you are using came off the same side

Re: Setting the points crab dizzy

sometimes you can fix it by swapping over the moveable parts of the points. Try that before bending anything.

Re: grinding 1st gear

What grade gear oil are you using? It seems okay when its cold, when the oil is thick. As it warms up, the oil is getting thinner (lighter), and not slowing the cluster down as quickly.

Its a 39, evident by the lower join of the top and bottom halves. 37 and 38 are joined at the middle. It will fit all 3 years.
