1966 Ford Mustang 6 cylinder automatic transmission
Discussion Starter · #1 ·
I have a 1968 engine with no spark, so far I've replaced points,condensor, and coil. I read 5.5-7 volts when cranking the engine over and testing the coil. Battery reads 12.25, that should be enough to give even a little spark, right? I did jump it earlier and it read 12.6 after 15 min of charging and taken off the jumper cables and got a little spark off of the coil plug wire. I am in this position because I had a misfire that would come and go. I diagnosed it to spark, and then after letting it sit a day, I fired it up; it did fire up then when i gave it any more gas than 1/2 pedal it would die and act like it was flooding, but it was not flooding. Then after messing with it I gave it more than 1/2 again and it lefted me stranded in my driveway and would only crank no spark. And that is when I started replacing components. The points are gapped to .27 and the condensor and points are Echlin. I tried routing a jumper wire from the battery to the coil to bypass the ignition switch and resistor wire and still nothing but I did read around 12 volts from coil when I did that but still had no spark. I admit I am stuck. Is this really just all from a low battery? It still turns over just fine. Any responses would be greatly appriciated.
