well, i'm still working on the 72 a bit at a time. all the coil and resistors seem to be ok. what i'm looking at now is the switch gear.
i can say the ignition system seems to have been up dated. the capacitor has had it's lead sniped off so it's out of the loop as far as the points are concerned.
i've got the benz engine manual, both chilton and hayes and the 107cd and i can't come up with the terminal numbers these books keep referring to. also it's taken all 4 to figure out a real test of the switch gear.
if there is anybody out there that has figured out the terminal #'s and where they are i would certainly appreciate a hint.
