This answer was rated:

I am restoring a 1951 Plymouth Cranbrook, and it won''t turn over. Have replaced the battery, ignition coil, resistor, and checked all the wires on the harness. Still it will not turn over.

Have you replaced points and cond?

Getting new points and condenser now. (It's gotta be one or the other)

holly,Since you restoring you would be better off going ahead and do a full tune up,plugs,wires,cap,rotor etc to eliminate problems down the road.Set your points between .015 and.018 and if you are running a twelve volt system make sure you have voltage to positve side of coil and the negative going to the points and cond.Hope that helps.Thanks for your question.Roger
