Thank you Carlton. I am running standard points. My original message did list all the things I had already tried, including swapping in a new condenser. 
BTW, we put a Pertronix II in in 2001. It lasted till 2007 after 77287 miles then failed. Been running points for the last 37000 miles.
Carlton asked:Not having seen the original message I don't know if the individual is usingpoints or something else. Has anyone suggested a bad capacitor on thepoints? Those CAN go bad and you CAN get new ones that are bad. The enginewill not run if that capacitor is bad. If someone else mentioned this then......never mind. -- Doug Mackintosh Corsa member since 1996 Corsa/NC member since 1996, Virtual Vairs member Corvair owner 1969-1971 and 1996-on
