that it is the condensors. Something seems to be not right with the ignition - when I check the timing with a test light (ignition on, leads connected to the moveable point arm and ground, turning the camshaft counterclockwise with a wrench) the test light comes on when the points open up. Chiltons manual clearly says the light should go out when the points open. There is also some sparking across the right points when I am checking the left points. Maybe I am missing something here. Any advice?
