  1. Sorry for the delay the last few weeks has been rough. Anyways I have continuity between the main power connection to the dist to the body of the dist. And continuity at the point plate
  2. The test light was touching where the breaker points get power the terminal on top
  3. After I read your post I get why you didn't understand. So to start I took my digital multimeter against the stationary and moving point plate, with the points open to see if I'm getting continuity between the points as they are open, I wasn't getting continuity so that's that. Then I removed the wire going to the plate to power the points and the condenser, powered up the distributor on the bench with a battery. And put my test light on the point terminal and when the points were open the light was off. Closed the light was on. When you connect that power wire back to the point power terminal, the test light stays lit open, and closed.
  4. So I have continuity when the points are closed. When removing the wire connected by the main stud I can see the points opening by the test light. I'm guessing it has something to do with the wire. Is there supposed to be a insulator or something. https://photos.app.goo.gl/g4NSQDqEgA6gM1GF2
  5. It still does the same thing even with it in the car. I took the distributor out for demonstration yes it is grounded. The condensor is installed just not in the holding plate for the sake of pictures. Those wires are super flexible quite honestly not sure what wire to buy. I had some wire from a harness i had sitting and used that. But greg g what do you mean by movement? The terminals or the wires. The set up is a 6 volt battery. Farm and fleet brand battery chargrd at 6.24 volts. Connected to a autolite coil i have the part number in my book. Im not sure how old but when i ground the coil out i get spark from the center wire connected to a plug. I can draw out a diagram for you tomorrow. And get more pictures of it in the car. I guess im having a hard time trouble shooting this problem. The points are clean. The coil is producing spark when i ground it. The manual doesnt say it has a ballast resistor. So my guess its something grounded in the distributor I wasnt too sure how to post pictures on here. It seems to be photobucket has some wierd pop up issue. Anyways ill get more pictures tomorrow since i know ir work's thanks everybody
  6. So i finally got some pictures today. Here is the pictures of the distributor with the wire going to the condenser. All ways hot open and closedThe pictures of the dist
  7. Please forgive me as well I'm new to the whole forum things
  8. I dont have a pic yet currently battling a ice storm my shop is 35 minutes away ill get one tomorrow lol
  9. I have 2 wires in the dist. Both are flexible almost looks like fusible link. Both wires are just connected with ring terminals. On goes from a stud by the post stud connecting from the body to the points. When i disconnect that wire i can visably watch the points get power between closing and opening
  10. Yes i have a meter. I am getting power 6.23 volts to be exact. The horn currently is out of the car. I have the issue when it comes to the points i think. I have power at the points constant on the non stationary point. So it is constanstly hot..
  11. Ok ill check. Let me get a picture of the distributor too. Thanks a lot
  12. The points are opening i can see them opening. But when they are open im still getting voltage on both upper and lower plates let me get a picture of the distributor. Maybe i put it together wrong. But all i know is i open up the points both sides are hot.
  13. Yes i do i have both test light and a multi meter. I have 6.24 volts at battery and 6.23 volts at the coil both sides
  14. So i have a 50 wayfarer. I did some motor work to the car. Im putting the car back together and re wiring the car back to original. Its hard to see the wire colors compared to the book, since its so faded. It also doesnt help that the previous owner mustve wanted to get the car running with home theater speaker wire. Anyways i have the distributor and coil in it. No spark. The coil is wired into the horn relay such as the book says. I would appreciate it if someone can give me some guidance since im 21 and this is my first full blown project car. The old girl is all stock and has the 6 volt positive ground on it.
