    i've hit a few sort of dumb problems with my engine install, lately. of the big 3, air and fuel are fine, but spark is a issue. i have the "batt" wire and the larger harness with 3 wires that goes from the distributor to the cap/coil plugged in. i don't think there were any more wires, to begin with. what am i missing, here?

    i tried a similar method, earlier witch would indicate either bad coil or no power to it. but i find it very odd, because the coil worked fine on the old engine. so, that makes me think i made an error hooking it up, this time. i just can't see what.

    so it does crank. have you ever had a pickup coil go bad. cause if cranks and your sure the coil is good you have a bad pickup coil. it's the magnetic pointe thing in the bottom of dist.have to take apart the dist completly good luck
