Default Help!!!!

I did go out and take a look at Marks 1930 Standard Coupe last night, l forgot to take any photos, a very solid, nice looking example.

It was not getting power to the Nurex ignition, but once we got the points hot we still had no spark. It was getting late so we decided to regroup on Friday evening. I will gather up some items such as extra coils and even a stock distributor, he probably already has whatever we need, and we will get it going.

Hoping for good weather by then because l Intend to drive my Phaeton, there is at least 5 miles of dirt/clay road to get to his place.

Thought l would provide an update, more to follow.

High marks for answering Mark's May Day. A compression test would be informative (valves). Interesting caper - welcome your after action assessment.
