all great advice
#1 on a side-mount is the wire pass thru on the distributor.
sooner or later, they all go bad.
a rust 'bridge' there makes it intermittent and tough to find.
also, as said, ignition switches made today are always suspect,
even the toggle switches I use are 50% bad today out of the box
.....or soon after.
Since it has had many hands working on it,
static time it by the book, and lock it down and leave it until
you get it running.(make sure you use the right timing
marks, there are 2)
In the field with no tools, I take the cap and dust shield
off, turn the key on and crank it over
and LOOK at it.
bright point spark on all lobes even when
wiggling thru connector?
ok, no problem here, on to the next.........
edit: just wanted to add, that when you are following Bruce's
good methodical testing write-ups.
Never skip over a part just because it's new.
chasing a random miss, on a Ford, and a JD recently,
putting a meter on the new ignition switches on both
1 key, 1 toggle, showed my meter dancing all over the place.
