OH YEA, Forgot to mention that you will proubley also need to remove plug's and clean/dry as if you cranked on it alot, it may have flooded thus fouling the plug's and cylinder's .Spin engine over with all plugs removed(if wet with fuel) to expell any excess fuel from cylinder's. Have coil dis abled during this time so a spark wont set off any fuel vapor's.Maybe you wont need to do all this once you get the point's (contact's) shined up.Mine floods real easy and fouls plug's. G.L.

Iagree, every spring i'd have to remove dist. cap and clean the points and cap contact's to get fire again.I pry the point's apart and stick a folded piece of sand paper between contacts and lightly shine the contact's. Moisture seemed to get into cap during winter storage.
