pesty skip found

Post by Chuck Stevens » Sat Aug 08, 2020 7:15 am

My 21 roadster has had a skip off and on since I've had it. Yesterday I turned on the ign and hand turned it to each firing point. The garage was dark and I saw a spark in the wrong place, The copper spark plug wire had come loose from the brass end that connects it to the coil. They are soldered originally. A drop of solder and we were back in business. I would have thought the small gap would have no effect on firing the plug. So turn off your lights and see what you see. It made my day, Chuck.

That’s good that you found it!
The simple fix things are usually the hardest to find sometimes. I’ll bet that’s happened to more than few T’s.
