Yup, replacing "points, plugs, condenser and cap" did it many times growing up, it was called a "tune up". Then pull out the strobe, hook it to spark plug number one, turn and lock the distributer until you reach "top dead center" on the flywheel!

Somewhere in history it was apparently decided that condensers/condensors are used in refrigerant circuits and capacitors in electrical circuits.

Nobody has heard of a condenser microphone?

My pappa got sick of that and ripped it out and put in a 'transistorized' ignition!

He would get more respect around here if he had used a TUBE ignition
