Hello everyone!!!   I am having trouble starting one of my parts cars. I don't have spark to the plugs so I backed up to the coil. No spark from the coil to the dist. I check the pos and neg side of the coil and no juice. So I changed the coil as I am removing the coil I noticed the condenser wire is broken. I am not sure if the points cond is the same but that's all I have so I put one on and a used coil in, and now I have juice on the pos and neg when I turn the key on, but still no spark to the dist when I crank the car. 

1st question  Will any GM coil work as long as its an 8 cyl, how do I know they are good?

 2nd    will the points cond work on the outside of the dist?

 

Thanks for the help guys

I think any 8 cyl coil will work but I think thats a noise supressor not a condencer but not 100% positive. Hopefully someone else wll chime in.
There is no such thing as strangers, only friends we have yet to meet.

Thanks Steve I am going to change out points, cond and the noise suppressor. Before I change the coil again.
