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
