I've got a Pertronix distributor with the Igniter 2 unit in it. I've also got a Pertronix coil. Both are less than 6 months old. I run this car every day, but have had trouble starting it off and on for last two weeks. Now it absolutely won't start and I'm getting zero spark from the coil. Any ideas?
I've swapped the coil for one that I know works and no dice. All connections are tight. Is it possible that the Ignitor unit died already? Would that cause no spark at the coil?

Does it require a ballast resistor or resistor wire? If so, are you running one? Does your voltage regulator keep the system voltage below 14 volts?
