  1. My MIL has this Karmann Ghia, my wife drives it one or two days a year to keep her happy, otherwise I store it and siphon the gas out a couple times a year and run it in my lawnmower (to keep the tank full and the gas fresh). It is in front of a parts lawn tractor i have in the barn, needed to get it out today, it ran fine when i put it away in November, today not a fart. I messed with it, coil had output when I opened the points manually with a screwdriver, I cleaned the points up with 220 grit But no spark at the plugs. The cap had this nasty arcing but looked clean and new otherwise. I rummaged around in a box of parts looking for a used cap or anything and found a whole Bosch tuneup . Didn't have my feeler gauge set because I didn’t have my utility truck. I tried everything I could and put in all the parts except the points (because I didn’t have gauges) finally in desperation I pulled the perfectly fine looking set out and put in the new set by eyeball. It fired up in half a crank. Miserable POS.
