Hello s19438,

The light blinking shows you are getting voltage to the coil and the points are operating. The points are making and breaking the electrical path to the coil.

To prove the coil, condenser, rotor, and cap you can check for spark at the end of each spark plug wire. Remove the test light and pull one plug wire at a time and check for spark at the end of each. You should be getting a nice blue/white spark that will bridge 1/4" gap or more.

Did you try rotating the plug wires in order around the cap this morning?

Still think all you've got to do is get the plug wires in the right order with #1 in the correct hole. However, the first thing I'd do is verify that the spark at the plugs is fat, blue and will jump a good quarter to half inch gap.

Without being where I can look at it, I believe a distributor oriented as yours is in the picture should have #1 at about the 10 or 11 o'clock position, then 2,4,3 in a clockwise direction around the cap. Of course, someone could have your distributor shaft 90, 180 or 270 degrees off too.

Since swapping 1 and 2 in the cap didn't work (you did try that didn't you?) you are down to figuring out where TDC compression stroke is on #1 and checking which terminal in the distributor cap the rotor is pointing at.
Your test light is a good indicator that points, condenser, coil, etc. are doing their thing. Add to that, the fact that your trouble started with chewed wires and you should have an easy answer here! Getting the plug wires in the right holes on the distributor cap would be my first priority!
