Try another coil and see how you get on. Also are the points gapped and spotlessly clean? Is the condensor in good shape?
After this I have a very well used "swear jar" if you want to donate to.

If you've been scratching your head about this, and then leaned across the truck you may have shorted it out with the static electrickery!?

Personally so far as the cooling is concerned I'd try flushing it all out thoroughly, then check the electrics with a live feed to the coil? :unsure:

It was running fine last week..... can lack of air in the tyre suck the tricity out of the spark plugs.

The world works in mysterious ways, Sarge. :S

With points closed, should have zero on that side and still 12ish on the hot side. Failing that, dead condenser/ capacitor?.

Thanks Jarrod, I killed that thingy in my O bedford it was 6 volt but I ran it 12 volt for years, one day no go. Don't know how I worked it out, must have had blinding inspiration, I suspect the loader was originally 6 volt too, and wondered if 20 years of 12 volt might have caused the same problem. Not being waterproof, I won't be going out today to check.:cheer:

Check the wear in the distributor camshaft...this was an issue with forklifts ,the point gap would change and engines would have zero power,push the shaft over ,and they run perfectly ...for a while......Some distributors like Lucas have a ball bearing and are easily fixed ,Delco s generally cant without much expense of having shafts rebuilt.
