Not having the financial resources to aquire an electronic ignition( TWO sons in college) I'm relegated to the original points ignition untill graduation(2010). I have the left cylinder sooting the sparkplug and in my diagnosis have found that I'm only getting about 5 volts to the front set of points (are these the ones that fire the left cylinder??). The rear set of points are getting the full battery voltage and that plug looks fine.(If it's for the right side plug) What could be the cause of the low voltage on the one set of points?
