Re: distributor, coil wiring

If a '68, then you need the cloth covered white wire to + coil along with yellow wire from starter solenoid. The white wire would be ignition feed.
Then need black pigtail from distributor to - coil, along with green wire from tach, if equipped.

Ken pick up the 68 AIM, it has full electrical diagrams in it. Assembly Instruction Manual, most repo parts dealers have them, so does Ebay.

Re: distributor, coil wiring

Are you missing spark? If so.
Do you have power to the + side of the coil with key turned on?
Are the points good, and adjusted properly.

Following the diagram won't make it fire. Following the diagram helps you figure out things like "do I have power at the ignition coil?" or "Do I have sufficient battery voltage to generate a spark?". If you tell us what you found, we can help you find what you haven't found. If we all sit around and guess you'll wind up paying money for parts you don't need.
