    electrical or fuel?

    76-2002 with original solex carb was on the road the other night and running fine when engine just died. When trying to start car it ignites for a second and then dies immediately. I pulled fuel line to carb and fuel flows nicely into a cup. I also checked the points and replaced the condenser. Based on how it stopped instantly while driving, it "feels" like an electrical problem..... or could the carb just fail like that. Is it likely the coil failed? Any way to test it? other ideas?

    Thanks much.... Don
