I have a dauntless v-6 that starting running a little rough and spitting back in carb during acceleration. Since it still has points and they were pretty cooked I went ahead and changed them. While I was doing it I also changed the plugs, wires cap and rotor. After doing this it simply will not run. I have also changed the coil and resistor trying to eliminate any possible problems. During this process I bought and attempted to install a Pertonix ignition to delete the points. The kit was defective so I sent it back. The engine turns over fine and is getting fuel. Timing is not exactly correct but close and if it will fire I can adjust from there. I set the new points to.017 per info I found on line. My dwelling meter is very old and I do not trust it so I really dont have one. I did have an issue installing the points and they seem to be at the end of the adjustment which I found to be odd. I've checked every way I know to make sure they are in correctly and I think they are. Right now I am kind of at wits end. I'm an old school mechanic and whiles its been a while since I've dealt with points I feel like they are in right.
have the same problem?
