no spark

sorry i searched forums and couldnt find what i was looking for. 68 camaro 327, no spark. tried a different coil same result. i measured voltage at both pos and neg terminals on coil and both had 12v? new cap and rotor turns over fine, just no spark. thanks in advance, i used to be better with this stuff, it has been years since i have had such a problem.

Smile Re: no spark

Check for power at the points, use a screwdriver to open&close the points with the key on and look for a spark make sure points are opening and closing when your cranking the eng. Could be the condenser. Hope this helps

Re: no spark

Test with a test light on the dizzy side of the coil...when u crank over it should pulse...If it doesnt, problem is in the dizzy...pionts/condensor.

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative
