Something that comes to mind is bad coil, coil not wired correctly, or you might not be having a problem that isn't related to the ignition system at all. For example my '47 started and idled perfectly but wouldn't rev up at all. It turned out that my accelerator plunger had folded a corner over and wasn't working. Fixed that and everything worked fine.
well the coil is brand new. as i listen to it more, it sounds like its missing even on idle. I was told it could possibly be something with the carburetor, where i need to disassemble it and unplug some lines in. If this is the possible case, any idea where i would find some schematics to follow along with?
