    I may have shot myself in the foot!!

    if you just hit the tip and closed the gap......you have done nothing internally except mess up your tune......I think I would look to an added gasket to the base of the spark plug....

    coil need to be grounded?

    take the pump plunger out and soak it over night in some light oil...lose the 3 'n 1 oil, you'd do better with Crisco than that stuff

    1941dodge luxury liner cross ply tyres

    per the book, all D19 'cept the 7 passenger sedan got 4.0 width, the larger sedan got 4.5 the 4 inch wheel was fitted with 16 x 6.0 and the larger 4.5 rims were fitted with 16 x 6.50 the D24 late models got a larger width wheel and wider tire for the larger sedan being 16 x 7.0 on a 5.0 rim. These may be the wheels you would want if sticking with the 16 and want a tad more meat on the road.

    finding a 16 tire in the width and height you need to retain the profile of the car and be modern radial...slim, very slim, I am still looking for these myself.....unfortunately you may well be stuck with that off the wall repop tires that do not run smooth based on all the experience I have had with them over all the years....16's are not a tire you can find with high enough sidewalls. If you find some, I would be interested....I thought I had one once...note to seller found a typo in his ad...

    coil need to be grounded?

    well, again...you were running prior to pulling parts, carb should not have gone south while you were pulling the distributor....again...look to the simple stuff...180 out is not hard to verify......

    you got this in the bag, just reach in there and pull it out......

    coil need to be grounded?

    if he had not fire when spinning..and voltage on the input to the coil..he had to have checked that with the points open....as for walking away after messing with it with key on and finding the coil very hot....the points have to be taking it to ground when closing...as for the reason to no spark, did you check the output coil wire to the distributor for possible damage when pulling the distributor from the vehicle....as it was running prior, it is a simple oversight...you got to retrace your steps....if you don't know what is wrong, prove what is right....you will find the cause...

    Looking for info and tips for "updating" my 48 special deluxe coupe

    so Mopar does not make a tranny worth a crap but if they did not give it to Ford, who knows if and when Ford would have gotten an automatic.....sorry dude....you get no points for the post.....😁

    coil need to be grounded?

    now is the time to come clean.....lol......are you still 6 volts or are you 12 volts....inquiring minds need to know.....your coil will need to be internal resistor if you not using an external resistor IF 12 VOLTS if 6, just ensure you not running a internal for this application...and no external either...again...I fyou have voltage at the coil primary and do not lose that voltage when the points close..you have an open between the coil and the points...….

    512 cid C series on Dakota chassis- build thread

    just what kind of steamship engine you got in there that you need 950 CFM double pumper......

    coil need to be grounded?

    well..considering the fact that it worked before pulling why you questioning the components...I would suggest you carefully go back over your connections...especially the one on the distributor end to ensure it is connected properly..if voltage at the coil and yet no spark..I would think the connection is poor and not allowing the points to take the coil primary to ground.....(ie...open)
