'70 Beetle won't start

Hey there,

I registered on your folks forum as I've got an old got 1970 Beetle. It spends the majority of time in the garage, so maybe that is why now there is some problem with the electrical system. First, it won't start every time I make it to. The engine cranks but will not fire. A couple of times I made it start, yet the engine misfired...

Everything is fine with the battery, sparks and alternator, the starter is also relatively new... and I do not seem to find the reason for such 'behavior'.... Though I sure understand it's something electrical LOL

I appreciate any help, folks...

A quick update here. A friend of mine, who's more skilled in the electrical stuff looked into this for me last night and said that an ignition condenser's got to be replaced. So I went ahead and ordered two yesterday (https://www.carid.com/ignition-condensers/), just in case... Hope that will do it.
