I've got a 43 willy MB, she just won't fire, the starter turns over she just won't fire up. I've changed the rotor arm
King lead
Checked the fuel lines
Replaced the fuel pump

New coil on order
New condenser on order
New plugs on order.

Please help.

Hi Dave, has it been retimed? Are you getting spark to the plugs?

No to the timing, and yes to the spark but not a strong spark, hence new coil and the rest. She worked fine up to about three weeks ago, then she broke down and not gone since.

Last year we fought an F-134 that just would not go - a lot like yours. I'll skip to the punch line - a bad condenser. Replace it and make sure that the tab is securely connected to the can.
