The distrubutor on my Star is an AutoLite with a serial number of GW4187A (may be more but that is all I can make out). I am getting voltage to my points but no spark. It appears that a previous owner has put is an updated set of points and condensor but I have no way of knowing what they are. The car ran when delivered last year. Secondly, the starter will not turn the engine over using the six volt battery. When connected to a twelve volt (yes I disconnected the starter from the six volt system)battery, it turns the engine over strongly. I got help on my Durant (starter-2009) and would appreciate some suggestions on these issues. Thanks
