I should still have spark, but I havent checked lately (will do so in a minute though to confirm). The truck ran & idled well but would lose power on acceleration or up a hill & in those same situations it would backfire a lot. So I figured that it wasn't advancing the timing properly & was trying to clean the insides of the old dizzy with the spray cleaner. While doing so, some little parts came out & a guy on mud that knows a lot about dizzy's told me they were the parts that hold the advance mechanism in place, and they couldn't be replaced, so I needed a new dizzy. Sure enough, I was never able to get it to start after that, so that is where this whole thing with swapping the dizzy came from...
