Start with the basics. No need to buy more parts yet.
Need to know if its 6 volt or 12 volt to give you numbers, but....
Does it have battery voltage to the coil when the points are open (key on)?
If not, what is the voltage there?
If zero, you're looking back toward the switch and wiring.
If a little less than battery voltage then you may have a ground in the distributor.
If it is battery voltage there with points open, what is it with the points closed?
If its still battery voltage, then the points are not making contact and may
just need to be cleaned and adjusted.
When you say you replaced the ignition resistor, do you mean the original ballast resistor?
The one on the back side of the dash?
If so, did you replace it with the same type?
The white ceramic ones don't have the same electrical characteristics.
