put a test lamp in line with the wire going to coil primary. key on and points closed.. lamp should glow. turning her over it should blink.

if no lamp, jump around coil. if that makes lamp.. pull coil for a more indepth ohm meter check.

also check key switch.

in general.. the coils are pretty robust.. keys not so much.

either can fail.

When you say a test lamp, is that something I can buy at a Lowes or auto parts store? Is it something that has aligator clips? I hate to ask dumb questions but I have done much automotive electrical testing.

if you've done a bit of auto electric testing.. then a test lamp should be in your tool box.

it's basically a probe and lamp ad gator clip. clip cator clip to ground usually..a nd then use the probe to find hot.. esentially.

the good ones will work on 6v or 12v. IE.. glow dim on 6 and glow bright on 12...

you don't need that tool.. however. any suitable voltage bulb and wires works fine.

you can make a cheap test lamp with a trailer marker lamp.. 1$ from the flea market.. etc. they have a 168 or 194 bulb in them usually..

thanks for the suggestions. One thing I forgot to mention, when I was adjusted the points, I accidently left the key on. As I was turning the screw with screwdriver I saw a spark. Does that mean the wiring is all good (including coil) up to the points?
