Could be weak solenoid. It is a magnatized cylinder with a metal piston and a fork. The fork moves the starter gear out to engage with flywheel. The solonoid can be weak or the starter brushes (little magnets inside rub to make electricity) may be wearing out. You can buy rebuild kits for these for $4 Much cheaper but more work to dismantle. Or get new starter and solenoid from scrap yard for $40 or new for $120

By the sounds of it your problem is that either the battery wants charging or replacing
Points set to bigagap and distributor and cap may not be seating correctly also check on the leads and Plugs for the correct gap
Have you played with the timing if not ok
The 190 is a lovley car look after it....

Testimonial: "thanks for the gen the;rs petrol in and the battery ok put petrol strait into the carb and it starts better and runs have left running for 10 minutes "
hi, it could be down to a couple of things the first could be that your battery is flat you can test this by turning the head lights on full beam and if they are really bright then turn the key to start the car if the lights go out or go dim then this indicates your battery is flat and will either need charging or replacing.
If the lights stay bright and the battery is charged then this would indicate that you have problems with the starter motor and this could need replaicing.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
