Died on the the way to my daughters trunk or tread at her day care. 7 miles into an 8 mile drive. Thought it ran out of gas because my sending unit is flaky but I guess that wasn't it. Turns over just fine but no spark, not excited to hear from the shop that is looking at it for me. It has been running so well this year Sad

+1 to the points suggestion! Got it back today, new points, condenser, some misc tubing\wires that had gotten brittle, a carb cleaning, basically it's first professional tune up in probably 20 years. Starts idles and runs better than ever and didn't break the bank.

With the proper battery clamp and battery pad (from Mike at Thing Parts), finally tied the battery down - been meaning to do that for months! Not a great idea to hold the battery in place by using the battery cables! Shocked
