Could a faulty coil cause my problems? I have never changed my coil since I changed my dist. From electronic to points. Could my coil be the problem? If so please let me know and/or what should the volts/ohms be to and from my coil to the dist. (Should I use a secondary resistor/condenser or not?)

I can drive my truck for about five or six miles and it starts to bog down and if I try to keep going it will eventually shut down, when that happens I have to get out and sand down my points and then it runs fine for another another five or six miles. What could it be?

What kind of problem are you having? Why would you want to go back to miserable breaker points? Do you have a ballast resistor in series with the ignition coil and a way to bypass it during cranking?
