I cleaned the points and put the distributor back in and tested for spark. Likely the first time for it to crank since 1974.

I decided to try and start it. I pulled the line off the fuel pump so it would not suck the old gas into the carburetor. Added gas to the carb through the vent and give it a crank. I have a temporary exhaust hooked to the manifold and it makes the noise in the video. It tried to start but I think I flooded it. Not used to the manual choke.
