Hey

I finally got it all together

Got no spark
all new wiring harnesses from bill evans. seems like it got it all correct
new petronic ignition

when key is in the on position but not cranking there is no power at either side of coil but there is power at both sides of ballast resistor with key in on position

when you crank the car there is power at both side of coil and no power at the ballast resistor on either side

must be missing something

I did also use a little dielectric grease on spark plugs and at distributor. Dont know if that would do anything

attached are some pics of the electrical components

Thanks

You have the double wires mixed at regulator vs resistor
 
Put one with brown on BR
 
Am I supposed to just switch the wires from the right side of resistor to the right sie of the voltage regulator. I have them on wrong sides. That could be it

Thanks

Will try
 
I got the wrong wire on voltage regulator and ballast resistor. I swamped them and its all good. fired up nice.
