After getting the electrical schematics from Dan, and some other tecnical help from Ree and Ron Brown, I replaced all of the connecting clips in the electrical system and cleaned the points. It did the trick, because the result was a nice, strong blue spark.
I ran into a petcock problem, but nothing too serious. I hope to get it running soon and terrorizing battle creek any day now. Thanks to the folks who responded to the post and helped me out.
