I think there's some confusion so I'll try to walk you through the check,
The first thing we will do is take your ignition switch completely out of the equation
Here we see my ignition set up. You can see the positive and negative terminals on the coil. The only wire running to the positive is the wire coming from the ignition switch. You may have a bolted connection here if the pigtail was ever replaced. Remove this wire so we can isolate the ignition system
Here you can see my finger pointing to the isolated positive terminal
Next lets make sure our lead coming off of the coil is set up somewhere where it can arc to a good ground. For me that was the water neck sticking out of the manifold. You can see the gap between it and the nice bare metal neck so this will be a good position to observe spark. Plus I don't have to hold it.
Next lets look how we will turn the motor over from under the hood. Here we see my remote starter button
Here you can see the S terminal and positive cable coming of the battery are what I am using. When I hit the button, the motor will turn.
Alternatively, this is the screwdriver method. If you don't have your remote starter, this is easy if your battery cable position allows. Actually i'm going to change my cable position because this just made me realize how easily you could steal my car.....
Next we will run a power wire to power our coil. What we are doing will tell us if the issue lies somewhere in the ignition components themselves. That's coil, points, rotor, cap, or coil wire. If we get spark, all these are good. If not, we need to look at these points. I took some length of wire and stripped the ends. If you have some alligator clips, that would work great for this.
I wrapped one around the positive terminal nice and tight
And the other I shoved into the positive battery terminal
Now use a method to turn the motor over. you should see nice sparks. Make sure the gap between the coil lead and a good ground is not too extensive but also not directly touching anything.
Here's a video I threw together for you since I was right there anyway.
On a side note, this is too easy to steal. I'm aware now
Anyway. Follow these steps, report back and we will troubleshoot from there.
