Default Little Help w/ Wisconsin BKN

Hello,

Started on a new project last night and hit a snag, I have a Wisconsin BKN. And have no spark outa the mag. Have checked the points condensor, i can get a spark outa it but its only jumping like .005 at the best. Any suggestions things to check would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks

Mike Gillette

Check the gap on the points!! What kind of mag is it. I have an AKN with a Wico Mag that would not make spark untill I set the points now it sparks like crazy. Not sure but most of my mags have the points set around 18 thousands.
Hope this helps.
Dustin

If it has a fbm type J set points to .020 and make sure theres no pitts grease or other crud on them. If still nothing try a new condensor.
