I know this is a old post!--BUT using 2 cond. does give a better snap on the plugs!---Also My Bro who ran like this went thru plugs fast!---The gap would open-up due to wear!,Even on Bosh-Platinum plugs!.---Another way is to get a Capacitor from an old TV or stero!--Has to be 400Volt min.!--& wire at the coil!--Better spark, nice snap!-(can hear it accross the shop!). BUT Plug life is compromised also!----I run a points ig. ---On mine I have Bluestreak--6cyl.-Chevy points 1970 or earlier!-I have a MSD CONDENSOR, & stock coil/ with MSD copper plugwires!--Stay away from radio suppresion stuff!!-,no good for points IG. Also I run Bosch Platinum-plugs!, My spark is crisp,/ loud & a nice bluish/yellow color!---Its a 1 kick bike ,after 2 primer kicks!---Hope this HELPS OUT!--(OH yea Bluestreak points can be hard to get!--Napa has points called ECHLINS!--GOOD-POINTS!)----RICHIE 8) KELL has schooled me some on this!-(smart man!)---Richie

Here's another old time secret trick to make your computer run faster:
Type in C:\DEL *.*


Oh, wait - someone might actually do that...
