    Re: hit and miss

    What are we working on?

    Have you checked the coils for cracks (both top and bottom)?
    How do the ignition wires look?
    Are the points dirty, or worn out?
    Did you clean the points with acetone, or electric contact cleaner after adjusting them?
    Have you checked the engines compression?
