Just got your reply thanks but I fixed it earlier today after the process of elimination and after I took it somewhere with a gas hook-up. I was getting continuity on everything so this is what I suspected. I replaced the larger of the coils and it fired right up! Problem solved! Thank for your help. Now I think I will work on the Performa I have had for a year with similar problems. Thanks again.
