do all of my wires appear to be on correct posts ?

 

i did swap the positive & negative on the new coil that is not working,

and new coil is still dead

(so i am going to move those wires back to where they were )

 

the other new coil fires great

and engine started right up  

but same 2nd coil has no spark like before 

 

so either the distributor is only for 4 plugs

or the thing inside distributor that spins

is not touching? (but when i swap coil to cap wires at dist cap... the good coil fires in either hole on dist cap)

 

or i have something else wrong

 Find the wire that has the 12v supply with the ignition on. That wire goes to the middle terminal. The other two don't really matter as they go to the coil negative terminals.

could i move the wires inside this harness block

so both coils share the mount posts of the coil that does work ?

 

the bottom one (farthest to right in pic) with black wires is my main hot 12v that is also on center inside dist on ign module  correct ?

find the key-on wire

Yes, I think it should be the middle terminal.

is it possible the ign module thing with wires hooked to go bad ever ?

 

Yes, but best to be sure the old one is bal or not wired properly

 

I see 3 wires correct?

Not likely. They have different diameter lugs to prevent mixing them up.

with key in ON posotion

when i test each lead inside the dist block with 3 different size lug posts

all measure 11.44 volts are greater 

 

 

each of the 3 lugs inside the dist itself on the ign module

also measure 11.44 volts and fluctuate a little with key in run position 

 

with key off none of the posts have any voltage
