Get a spark tester.

If it shows spark = the old coil was weak, and the spark plugs are flooded.

Replace the spark plugs with:

Ummm...okay....NOT !!!!

Welp...the benzo is purring again !!! Turns out I just didn't get the distributor rotor aligned properly.
Boy that sure is a far cry from any of the "suggestions" that I got.
Anyways, I am going to look at it this way, I got her a new ignition coil out of the whole least that's the way I plan on selling it...hehehe.

Moral of the story:

Respect your spouse and do not be mean to the ones that you love........and don't mess with her car, cause then she has to ride her bike and you get no huggin' at night....and we all like hugs right !!
