    stupidest thing I've ever seen

    When I bought my Dodge I noticed a wire unhooked on regulator. Then saw the battery was hooked backwards. Some people just don't know about positive ground.

    Still searching for the answer, engine stumbles at 50.

    I got a set of points from rock auto. Best looking points I' seen in a long time. A lot better made set than I'v e been getting from parts store.

    Gyromatic question

    Thats what I think too. Not sure exactly how much oil I drained out. But I'm sure it was too much because now it works like it should. I measured 1 quart but not sure how much was left in pan.

    Gyromatic question

    Your right. Lady in working in farm and home told me 1 qt was 4 pints. I might have taken out more than I thought. I'll put a little more in but it is shifting down like it should now. Thanks for the correction.

    Gyromatic question

    I found my problem this morning. Operator probs happen a lot.about. About a year ago [yes it took a long time to find] I changed fluid in trans. Jacked car up from passenger side to get at trans plugs. Big mistake, suppose to have 3 pints 10 wt oil. I drained out 1.5 quarts of oil. Put in 3 pints 10 wt oil now it works fine. Sometimes feel like a fool this is one.

    Gyromatic question

    I can't get my 50 dodge gyromatic to down shift unless I come to complete stop and push clutch in Shifts up ok but not down even if I floor it. Ran all electrical tests in manual and they all check out ok.

    External resistor or not

    my 50 dodge is 12 volts. I have a resistor and was still going thru points like crazy. I tested and was getting 10 volts from resistor to dist. I switched the wires around on resistor and now get 6 volts to dist.guy tell me resistror is the same either way but this is the way it tests. Car is running way better and points haven't burnt out since I did it.
