50V-weak spark

Got the engine back together, now I'm fighting the other issues. I have spark, but it seems weak, won't fire starting fluid or fuel. Filed points, set points, still no pop or anything?? I didn't want to fool with the timing, I don't see how it can "go astray". Replaced condenser also. Any thoughts?

whoops, wrong forum...

Re: 50V-weak spark

Check the spark plug wire. switch it if you have a second one. Did you ground the braided wire to the engine and ht coil screw?

Re: 50V-weak spark

Thanks, wire was fine, resistor cap was shot (open). Now I guess it's time to try a set of points...
