No start barely any spark on 1976 MGB

Asked by AngeloC9900 Apr 18, 2020 at 12:18 AM about the 1976 MG MGB Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Earlier I added this question. “
I replaced the coil distributor cap/rotor. Has new
spark plugs and wires. But
does not want to start. The other day i checked for
spark and i noticed that
there was a slight spark happening.”
I forgot to mention since it’s a 76 it’s an electronic
ignition could the condenser be bad?

If this were my car I might swap out the distributor for a new Pertronix one. Try Moss Motors. The old Opus ignition system was not all that great.
