Why does engine cut out at 50 mph
Have replaced coil, points, condenser, fuel pump. Engine still cut out at 50 mph in high gear. 45 in 2nd no problem High rpm in neutral - runs fine. Just not at 50 on highway
have the same problem?

Whe you replaced the points, how did you set them? Did you do it by gap or did you use a dwell meter?

I set them with a dwell meter. The engine is a flathead 6. I set the dwell at 30 point gap 0.020 Should I advance or retart the timing?

The dwell doesn't sound right. It has been a long time, but if I remember correctly, 28 - 32 degrees dwell sounds like it is for a V8. Double check that.
