Dad's car runs again

Finally!  After some electrical problems, ignition problems, and some rusty gas, I got it started!  Turns out the ancient ignition condensers tested way higher than the specified 0.3uF, more like 1uF.  Took the distributor out again, polished the points up a little more, cleaned up some grime from the distributor innards, and with a brand new set of condensers, it lit off!  Spark tester is lighting up brightly now.  Running off a gas can for now, and the oil pressure is good.  Best part, despite the electrical issues inside the dash, the generator is generating.  Let my folks know, and they are thrilled to see it running.
