I have a plug spark test light hooked up to a plug so I can watch the spark. It starts and runs a couple of minutes with good spark off the generator. I can see the spark quit like turning out the lights. I took a reading on the coil and it was 6.24 dcv. So I never lost power to the distributor. I crank it over again and there is no spark. When I come back the next day it does the same thing and every day thereafter like clockwork.

I do not plan on changing from the positive ground 6 dcv system. The generator and starter have been rebuild. It cranks over good and keeps the battery charged.

I gotta believe it is something in the distributor. The wires, wire harness and cutout are less than 2 years old. The resistor, coil, points, plugs, condenser, cap, rotor and bushings are new.

Prior to all this it was becoming difficult to start do to sloppy bushings. However, when started it ran like a watch. The current issue started after the bushings were replaced but that could just be a coincidence.
