I will do that when I get home. I did purchase a pertronix ignitor system, I think it's time to get rid of the points and condensor, I will keep you posted once it is installed. Thanks!

I checked out the condenser and it was on there tight, I noticed there was another condenser on the air conditioner compressor connected to the coil, does this have anything to do with the points, do I need to replace both of these to see if the condenser is the problem?

I've had that issue with bad coils.

Good when cold, don't work when hot.

Yeah, when I got home I started the car, it idled bad, then stalled, so even though it was cold it was still doing it. I will wait and see when l get my pertronix and new coil, hopefully that will fix this problem.

Installed the pertronix and new coil, running fantastic!!!! I noticed the old coil had alot of corrosion in the plug, that must have been the problem. Another problem solved.......till the next one, haha, thanks for all your help.
