My Volkswagen won't start

Asked by Sep 19, 2016 at 11:24 PM about the 1974 Volkswagen Beetle Hatchback

Question type: General

I adjusted the points on my 1974 Volkswagen bug a
couple weeks ago and it was the perfect gap but
throughout the last couple of days it kept dying on
me. I re adjusted them again tonight and they are
what they are supposed to be but now my bug
won't start. I'm not sure what the issue is because
nothing else should be wrong with it.
