I recently bought 64 Amphicar. I bought it not running based on the price and condition. It was a really good deal (I think). What I know so far is that there is no spark. I have a cap, rotor, points and condensor on order and I'm looking for wires. I haven't tested the coil yet but I plan to do that this weekend. I connected a low voltage wire that was hanging off the coil but that didn't do it. Does anyone have any input on what might be a common problem with these ignitions or a methodology for pinpointing the root cause? I think I can probably pick my way through and get there eventually but with this vehicle being new to me, I thought I would try to benefit from the experience of more knowledgable folks like you. Thanks.
