Where, over 'there'?? I lost the thread....

as for the orange color, it's arching too high a voltage back through the primary of the coil, the cap is bad....

I used to know the value of the caps.....but I forget....

I want to say .5 mfd.....??




Haven't worked with points since '75? or so.....

GOD, maybe me longer term memory is better than short term....I can't remember dinner last night even with today's reminder....



Tidied up a small amount under the hood on the vette today, needed to move that relay controll pack of 3 relays from under the hood to behind the map pocket, so run 7 extra wires through the firewall....woopie doo, just follow the leader, so to speak....anyway that silly underhood kludge is very slowly being cleaned up....

first prove what wanted, WORKS, is my attitude, then get around to cleaning it up, not that it's a show car or anything, but not SO embarrasing to pop the hood....

actually vette owners are taken aback a bit....then they look at the fit/finish and don't trust the basic engineering...oh well....

I feel like a grumpy old man.....
