Mechanical Help Please (fouled plugs/erratic idle/hard start) in Engine, Transmission, Drive Line, Etc Posted August 6, 2016 Upon further testing and investigation, points suck. I was still having issues when it was under a load. I broke down and swapped the points and condenser with a PerTronix electronic ignition. It fired up perfectly and ran like a champ. No hesitation or bogging under a load. That will be the last set of points I ever deal with. It was definitely worth the $85 dollars.
