Default Plan 'B'

Ok, I hooked up a wire from the 'hot' side of the starter relay and ran it down the earthstrap, behind the alternator, across the top of the waterpump below the expansion tank and behind the distributor to the inner-fender on the drivers side.

I mounted a relay on the inner-fender using an existing hole and ran the original resistor lead for the coil over the the relay to activate it when the key was turned.

The relay then allowed 12V direct to the new coil I previously mentioned I bought.

It all worked as planned, motor started just as easily as before but it it dang well still missed and stuttered.

Whipped out the spark-plugs after a run on the open road and (with it slightly stuttereing the whole time, really noticeable under load) and found two or three pretty dark looking and #4 even had a slight oily look about it...hmmm.

Biffed away all the plugs and banged in a set of Champion F11YX GOLD plugs (use to have F9's in it).

Now it runs like a charm, no misses or stuttering, idles smoothly...woooo-hooo.!!!!
