I was actually very impressed with how well @getalifebrook ‘s van did on the drive out to cal. Right about the time I was thinking that (2am, 30mi from home) she cut out completely, like someone hit the kill switch. After a little deductive reasoning we came to the conclusion that it wasn’t getting any spark. After some more screwing around we figured out that the points follower snapped off in the distributor. Turns out brook had a new set of shovelhead points in his parts stash from the swap meet. After punching a new mounting hole in them with a screw driver and a rock and a little bending using a crescent wrench we had the van purring like a new animal. Moral of the story, sometimes it’s pretty fun to play around with these old vehicles on the side of the road late at night.
