First see if you have spark from the coil (wire that goes to the center of distributor.) If yes, then rotor or cap--yes I know the cap is new but sometimes they die early. I always keep an extra cap and rotor around to test with. If no spark on center wire, condenser is next suspect. After that, try new points. Finally, ohm out your coil. They die sometimes, too.

If you are due, just do cap, rotor, condenser, points. Sometimes easier than troubleshooting and then you are good for a while. If it runs, swap in your old, newish cap and see what happens. If good, then you have a reserve.

We did use emery on the points and cleaned them after, and the wires are solid core to. But I will try again, Thanks for the help

use 400 grit on the point gap, then wipe with a folded dollar bill to get all grit out. It will run. Jim
