Cap'n,

I understand your affliction well since I am also effected. That is, as far as cars go, my motto is "Buy early and buy often."

Have a great day,

Larry, Many people don't realize that a magneto is a point system... just way more reliable than anything else I know of...

On your dampness problem.... most coils are sealed... so I doubt that is your dampness problem... much more likely it is condensation under your distributor cap....

Big ol LOL!! Only you could have said that!! I will add " buy them HOT" to that!! All jokes aside, you are right on. For the family car, which is always the wife's daily driver, I keep her in a recent vehicle. For the past ten years she has not had a car with over 45,000 miles. Me, on the other hand, I'm content to drive anything that is "fairly" dependable and economical. My days of impressing people with cars are over! I still like to change my own oil, tune my own cars and will even do a head rework if necessary. But I cannot justify reinventing the wheel at my age. I have NEVER been stranded by a vehicle with a carb and points!! (If you don't count the time I ran out of gas).

Getting back to the original thread I'll have to weigh in with the 190SL. The only auxillary electric motor in the car runs the stationary defroster. Heat for the car is ram air.

Easiest one I had to work on was my 1959 190b. You could almost get in the engine compartment with the thing to work on it. You can actually see the ground around the engine when looking under the hood.
