Re: 68 no spark from coil

welcome to team camaro!

Do you have a voltmeter or test light?
Do you have power to the + side of the coil with the key in "run"?
did you adjust the point gap and verify that they are actually opening and closing?

Re: 68 no spark from coil

what do you have on the - side of the coil with the key in run?
Check it with the points open and closed, you should be able to turn the rotor enough to do that, or open them with a screwdriver and put a peice of thin cardboard between them.

be careful around the coil, don't be stickin no meter in the output side, stick a plug wire (connected to a plug) in there while you're testing. That thing fires it will knock you across the room.
