This caused my 40 to lose its spark and not start.
The nature of a dry joint can result in it failing when more current passes through it so you can not test for it without powering everything up and running the engine as a tester on its own when little power is being used may not show the fault.
So to test this run a fused and switchable +12v feed to the + (positive) side of the coil and try the car.
Make sure you can disconect this feed as it will be the only way to stop the engine once it is started!
If this is the cause it is far better to effect a soldered repair by takning the relay box apart than it is to try and replace the unit, as the replacement may well have the same fault as it is quite common, even in 'new old stock' items and those taken from a working car.

Since , it started only 2 times with poor response at throttle, misfires and so on .
