Update: Put in new points and is was well. Actually running so well, did
not try to change out the compufire stuff in the SVDA, just going to use
the 009 for now. Is there a way to confirm the compufire is shot?

THANKS for all the help!

There is however now another issue now that I am rolling. :-(  I am getting
pretty low growling grindy noise noted as the clutch is released. It goes
away as I get moving and petal is all the way out. I can not hear it when
clutch out and moving at slow RPMs, so do not* think* that it is tranny
related, but is not heard when the clutch is pressed and released with the
bus in neutral. Same TO bearing used in the 69, and was not making any
noise in that bus. I'l remind that this bus has not been driven in years,
and the tranny fluid was about 3/4 quart low before I drove it.

Any ideas?
