I have a 1975 Dodge W100 with a '68 318 industrial and it was running perfectly until a few days ago. My dad was driving when it suddenly started running very roughly and eventually he pulled over. Nothing appeared to be wrong, but he couldn't get it to start again. We dragged it home behind our tractor and I started messing with it. It's getting fuel, I can see it through the carb. I hooked up the timing light and the timing is way off. A few of the other wires didn't give a reading at all. I checked the starter coil and it was bad so I replaced that, but it didn't help. The spark plugs look good and I just replaced the points, rotor, cap, condensor. I also gapped the plugs and points a month ago, but I didn't have time to gap them tonight. Any ideas on why it would suddenly lose it's spark?
have the same problem?
