The light will go out when the points close because it's a lower resistance path. You get the spark when they open. I've been following this saga and you shouldn't be having this much trouble so let's go back to basics.
Cylinders are numbered front to rear.
Verify your firing order. Every engine I've ever seen has it cast on, usually the intake manifold.
Put No 1 at TDC on the COMPRESSION stroke.
Find your distributor rotation and rotor position. The points should have JUST opened to fire No 1. Put the plug wires on in the correct order according to the dist. rotation. I'm not familiar with 4 cyl Fords but almost every other 4 I've seen is 1-3-4-2. Hope this helps.

if his test lamp is in series with the coil and points, it ONLY comes on when points close.

if it is across points, it is only on when they are open.
