If the new points dont work I will give the oven thing a try. I was told to set the coil gap, you need to put a business card between the coil and the flywheel. That should work, right?This may sound strange, but many people will take the coil and very lightly wrap it in tin foil and bake it in the oven at 200 deg for about an hour. This will get the moisture out. Is the coil set the proper gap from the flywheel?
