Re: Coil wire

Thanks for that, but I removed mechanical pump. Only run airtex electric pump.

I’ll buy a bottle of Marvel mystery oil for gas. Can’t hurt:)

Re: Coil wire

Sorry for the lag. As mentioned, I am suspect of a bad coil wire. You see any issue with: Running a new #14 wire right on top of existing wire?

Re: Ballast resistor

How is the ballast mounted? I see two flathead screws but are there nuts or just screwed in?

1939 stock car. What would be symptom of an original ballast resistor going bad? Can it be intermittent? Work and then not work?
