I call it redneck engineering... lol... I finally figured out that although po had installed a few 12V items it is still for sure 6V pos ground. And the plug wires were on wrong and they put dizzy in 180 degrees out. That is why cap was turned 180 degrees from it proper position and the new points they installed were burned up. So, new points, rewire plug wires, I only had a 12v battery and a 12v coil with built in resistor so I isolated the cranking system and ign system with jumper wires, new fuel line and filter feeding from a gas can she came to life! I will try to post video.
