I got this barn find to start and run after some difficulties. I ran a wire from the + battery to the + coil. I would take this wire off after I finished....at least for several times. Then I forgot to take it off, I guess it's like leaving the iginition switch on. Now it won't start. The battery is good, I recharged it and the engine turns over. I replaced the coil which had a large crack in the top.

Any ideas what I should look at next?

thanks
