Follow Randakks install on that, you bypass the resistor and the condensers so less wiring overall. It's also a performance upgrade good for a few HP. and throw the scotch lock in the trash first thing LOL.

That scotch clamp is about as bad as using house twist on connectors lol

So next is to make sure your condenser and coils are good. So 12V is going from the points to them the coils will work without the condenser but the point wear faster. You need to multi-meter the coils, the tests for them are in the manual. If I get a chance tonight I'll scan the pages for you.

I cannot remember what else you have checked, but did you check the plug caps and shorten the HT (plug) leads 1/4" or so?

This is a good start as well. If I have the time I'll scan the whole section of my honda FSM for ignition trouble shooting. It has all the steps and checks for the whole shebang. THat being said if you've ordered the Dyna kit you will replace almost all the parts for new and will fix it for sure.

My '78 will only run on the start buttion for about 5 cranks after setting a few days. Then it starts to catch. Might be just not getting enough fuel in the bowls yet.
