Thanks again to all who posted info. Sorry I have not gotten back sooner...work, play and family obligations have taken precedence to computer time. After all info gathered here I am with the conclusion that as "Red" stated in earlier post:the multi meter shows higher voltage because of "lack of load". I have been running car a little bit and am not having problems with points or coil burning out or heating up. My "breaking up" problem that I was having got me to thinking that maybe it was a fuel problem. As I stated earlier, I have 3x2 carb setup on this motor. I decided to "block off" front and back carbs to eliminate the potential of them giving me problems and when I did that I eliminated the backfiring and breaking up that I was experiencing. Now I have to get rid of the problem i am having with one of or both of those carbs. I know what has to be done, it's just a time and dollar thing right now. Thanks again. Lesson learned: remember that digital multimeters are sensitive and don't read like a gauge. thanks to all, Rick
