    Still no spark. I pulled spark plug one out and grounded it no spark. Pulled the coil wire out grounded it no spark. I did the distributor setting and checked if I have compression just in case and I do. I bypassed the resistor and hooked the hot wire straight to the coil and no spark.

    I know it’s was probably a dumbass question I just wanted to make sure.

    No it’s not running but I have electricity running how it should.

    I did what I was told earlier in this forum and also did the negative side and got a flash. Also after I cleaned the point and reset the gap the car was turning a lot stronger. Even when the battery was low. I have fuel in the carb and the pump is new and working. Is there a hose or something I should be looking at after the carb? I know I’m all over the place, my bad just trying to figure this out.

    Well I put the battery in and it still won’t start. I was testing the volts a second time and this time I didn’t plug the battery in. But the light still turned red on the test lamp on the coil is that normal or did I buy a wack test lamp from autozone?

    https://imgur.com/a/2rv15hx so I gapped the distributor .483 mm. The owners manual said .45-.55 mm. I also noticed it wasn’t gapped correctly and was really dirty on the point. Like grease was on it. Waiting for my battery to charge and going to see if it sparks. The coil, resistor, and the coil plug wire all lite up the red light on the tester and so did the distributor. But my battery is almost dead so I had to get it charged.

    So I did pull the coil wire off and try that. I got not spark. So then I changed the coil and measured the ohms and got a 1.6 reading. I installed the new shiny coil and still no spark. I then checked the volts on the resistor and all that and got 12 volts. I haven’t messed with the distributor yet. Then I thought ooo maybe the spark plugs are not gapped right. Spark plugs were bad. Changed the plugs and made sure they were gapped correctly. Still nothing. So the only other thing I guess it the points. I’m about to open it up right now.

    Thank you. I will try all this tomorrow and let you know what happens.

    Yea I changed the coil because of no spark and I still have the original points.

    It didn’t work with the original coil neither

    https://imgur.com/a/YoDMlHt i took some pictures of the ignition set up to see if I did it correct or am I missing something. Also just to let you guys know I disconnected the horns because they started to spark when I tried starting the car.

    Thank you. I’m still going to post a picture just to make sure. Because I tested all the points according to the owner’s manual and even YouTube and everything checked out but still no spark. I cleaned grounds points replaced wires and still nothing. Could a ballast resistor go bad?

    I know this is probably a dumb question but I don’t know why I don’t have a spark and want to send pictures to you guys but it won’t let me send pictures on how I have it wired up. I am on an iPhone.
