Mutt, the rotor is the magnets, right? It draws the screwdriver when. Put it
next to that. You rebuilt the motor so it wouldn't have a bad rotor, right? I
have switched out practically everything...spark plug spark plug wire,
external coil, condenser, stop lamp points, not internal coils". I have been
trying pieces off the running 62 pacer but, and now it won't start unless
pushed and popped into second gear. So i think I'm flooding it now. I don't
know what else to do on the scat, and everyone seems baffled. You got
any ideas? Gene

Good morning Gene, has the Scat ever actually ran? You say ya
have changed every thing, but I don't see where ya changed
the rotor, (which would have been my first item to check)

Thanks! We will check that' tomorrow when we look at her


Make sure the brake light points are open when the ign.
points are closed or it will steel the electric.

One coil/points runs the ignition and stoplight, the other
coil/points runs the horn, headlight and taillight.

So when you hold the horn button while kicking, it shows
that the lighting coil and points are working.

But what about the ignition coil? You can do a rough test
with an ohmmeter - the coil should be neither shorted nor
open. Measure the impedance of the lighting coil. The
ignition coil should be roughly the same. Which I think is
only a couple of ohms.

The coils are different. One has thicker wires and is
designed to handle more current. Physically you can swap
them. Electrically, it might NOT be a good idea. Mutt?
Duane? Is this a good idea?

Just to make sure, have you swapped the points? I've had
some points that looked fine, but won't pass 'lectrikity
even after filing them. Of course an ohmmeter will do it

An ohmmeter will quickly prove out your wiring harness. A
$20 multimeter from Radio Shack or an auto parts store is
one of the best tools around!
